I go by there pretty frequently and would never have thought about that. Thanks for the post, and I'm glad your friend is OK.
Oh no! That's my fav south side stop for #2!
Thanks for the post! I go by there twice a day - and although I've never stopped to go in there - will not in the future. Dizam that sucks.
Thanks for the post. Glad your friend is o.k. In 2004ish a guy pushed me into the dirt/grass as I was passing and tried to steal my bike from between my legs about 30 yards north of this same spot at about 6:30 p.m. in the summer. (He didn't get the bike because my shoes were still attached to the pedals). When a jogger appeared he scrammed over that same bridge. It's definitely not my favorite part of the trip.
I was pushed over by three kids in the area where they are now building the new monster bridge and they wanted to steal my bike. This happened in about 2008 or so.
I picked it up and swung it at them like a weapon, got back on and kept going. They pushed me again and I got away. Actually I can't remember if I swung the first time or the second This happened further north in the grove of trees coming south by where the "streetlights" end. Made me nervous for a long time every time I went past that spot.
I also say "Good to know" about stopping in that Bathroom. I just went there yesterday! Wow, glad your friend is okay though.
