Cook’s Landing 9/27/2008

When I left the house, I had no idea that today was the day for the Big Dam Bridge Bike Tour. After I turned on to Maumelle Boulevard, I had to wait 20 minutes while hundreds perhaps thousands of bikers came through. Finally, made it in. I parked next to the backwater and walked a loop along it, down the River Trail and back via Campbell Lake Trail and Isabella Jo Trail. The loop took about 90 minutes.
