So I decided to go on a little ride on Thanksgiving day before I stuffed myself. Downtown Cleveland is a fun place to ride around and take pictures as it is generally pretty deserted. Enjoy.

HO HO HO. Santa checking out my bike. Wow, those bars look high. I was futzing with my brake lever position and now I got those way too low and the bars are now turned up like a crazy persons. It doesn’t look that bad in person, I promise.

A picture of “The Ol’ Woolen Mill”. This place is huge. They used to make lots of wool clothing here. If only Rivendell had been around to sell some wool t-shirts back in the day they might still be open

Neat little barber shop. I picture Andy, Goober, Floyd and Barney hangning out here playing checkers. This is the O.K Barber Shop. Their nemis is right down the street, The Great Barber Shop.

I don’t think in Mayberry next to Floyd’s Barber shop there was an extreme skate shop named “Asylum”

I took this picture before, but I had different bar tape on.

Cafe Roma. Great little restaurant. Deserted street.

More deserted streets. It reminds me of the opening scene of “Vanilla Sky”.

Neat bell in front of the courthouse.
