2020 Distinguished Gentleman's RideSeptember 27, 2019 - Madison, WI
I participated in the Distinguished Gentleman’s Ride again this year on Sunday, September 27, 2020, in Madison, Wisconsin. Because of the China Virus, this years event was a solo ride called “Ride Solo Together”.
Unfortunately, the weather didn’t cooperate, and it was a rainy, overcast, cool day. I waited until later in the afternoon to go on my solo ride, to avoid getting soaked. I decided to ride to various places in Madison that have some meaning in my life, to provide you a bit of a personal photo journal.
Thank you to all those who supported me in this years ride! You are much appreciated!
My first stop was the Henry Vilas Zoo. It’s located about 3 miles north of where I live and has a nice park where I have spent a number of occasions with family and friends.
Second stop was the Neighborhood Center on Mills Street where I used to spend Tuesday evening at a Bluegrass Jam facilitated by the Southern Wisconsin Bluegrass Music Association. That ended with the China Virus, and I really miss it!
Fourth stop was the Visitor entrance at Edgewood High School on Monroe Street. Up until the lockdowns, I would come here every Sunday morning for church services at Christ Church Madison.
Fifth stop was the nearby entrance to the Performing Arts Center, which will be the new location of Christ Church Madison in November. It will be a welcome change to the many weeks and months that I was hired to facilitate the online live streaming services for the church.
Seventh stop was Harbor Freight Tools located on Verona Road. I am here almost every week as I buy most of my tools and supplies for my handyman work as well as my own auto/motorcycle shop work.
Eighth stop was Gino’s Italian Deli where I often pick up a sub sandwich and iced tea for lunch when I am out serving my handyman customers.
