Parvin Covered Bridge

Friday, August 19, 2011
Leader: Patricia Esch
Bike: 25 miles, 250 ft (Moderate)

Five bikers gathered in Pleasant Hill for a social ride to the newly reconstructed Parvin covered bridge, east of Dexter. The short, steep downhill beginning was fun but gave food for thought about the return. We took back roads north of Hwy 58, under the railroad, past Elijah Bristow Park, crossed the highway to Dexter, under the railroad again and zipped down Parvin Rd to the bridge, which was originally built in 1921. Standing underneath by the stream, we could see mostly old beams with some new replacements. The siding and roof looked new with a shinny white paint job. Returning to the park, we ate lunch and were glad on this warming up, sunny day that biking creates its own breeze.
