Pre Breakfast Bike Ride
May 6, 1979
There appeared to be lots of interest for the trip with a sign up list that looked
to be a foot long.
Only Bob Devine and Ellen Jackson decided to brave the cold windy and rainy weather,
explore the unknown and appeared on the scene.
We made a 2½ hour tour following the bike trails along the Amazon and the north side
of the river.
We re-crossed the river over the new Knickerbocker Footbridge located near the freeway.
This entailed a portage up on to and off of the bridge as there were no approaches,
plus a short ride through some puddles and mud and finally a second portage across the
railroad to Judkins Point.
All of this backpacking of bicycles was a surprise for Bob and Ellen.
The long grade up to the Lodge was quite easy, arriving there with a good appetite for
an excellent breakfast.
