The action was fast and the mood light at the whiffle ball tournament.
Things did not go so well for one rider that I encountered. He had taken the curve at the S-Turn bridge a little too fast and crashed his tri bike. The result was an apparently broken collar bone.
I rode up to Cook's landing to escort the ambulance in to the injured rider. With an ambulance on your wheel, even the most stubborn trail users move to the right.
As I descended the Little Rock side of the Big Dam Bridge, I noticed that Bill's Coneys had set up shop near the base of the bridge. I wrote a second-hand report on Bill last week and was determined to sample a Coney so that I could give you first-hand information.
This chilidog had the look of good eating and possible indigestion.
I wasn't the only cyclist to fuel up at Bill's.
When Bill is not adding a little character to the River Trail, he sets his stand up on weekdays across Markham Street from UAMS.
Considering that it was a beautiful day, the crowds were thin on Saturday, but I still ran into a number of friends out enjoying the many activities available along the river. Road riders, mountain bikers, runners, walkers and sunny-day bench-sitters were all smiling. And, why not?!
