Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

I didn't go far, but it had taken me a while to get the rig set. This was our maiden voyage: me, Decker (min pin) and Ohna (Rat Terrier). uh oh. This pics look big.

@bonsai171 (Dave) and I rode gravel today.

This is Blue Car Body Rd. Totally not kidding about the name.

It is right on the square in Marietta, Georgia. Land of Gone with the Wind.

There is a construction site behind the fence and they let artists do murals. I'm not sure who (whom?) the subject is. There are two or three other murals adjacent. The one shown is the best IMO.

I agree there should be more art. It is better than looking at fences and walls. I'd posted some street art from intown Atlanta before. Here are a few reposted just for fun.

My uncle lives in Marietta, but itís been a good while since Iíve been up there. Here in savannah, there is a surprising lack of it. I mean we have it, just not to the degree that youíd expect from the home of SCAD. Itís kept out of the historic downtown area for tourist reasons (gotta keep up that Ďantebellumí vibe for the northern tourists. :eye roll: ) but even in our starland district, thereís a surprising lack of it. I love seeing work like this, so thanks for sharing.

That's right, I forgot you were in Savannah.

For some reason I brain farted and thought you were in California.

I've always liked murals. Got a lot of them in Philly, the mural arts program here is really active.

The California of Georgia is probably pretty accurate to be honest.

I love and adore my city though, itís got a special soul. Itís everything you expect it is and at the same time itís the exact opposite of what you expect it to be.

Thanks Dave,

Wabi really hit it out of the park with the moss green this year if you ask me.
