Yep, on Wednesday my orthopedic surgeon gave me the green light for biking again and so I did yesterday! It feels great after 3 months of not having done so. My closed fractures of the pelvic bone continue to heal and I'm not supposed to jog.
Biking yesterday morning together with Pieter for the first time in 3 months, felt great!
So we ought to repeat this lovely ride from last year. The Chattahoochee RiverWalk in Columbus, Georgia, along the Alabama border.
Quiet and in nature, and most important, rather flat area, as my husband Pieter no longer is allowed to bike in hilly areas due to his weakened heart.
Here I am on October 5, 2017 with my wicker basket that I used for Mauzie, my Dachshund and it is quite handy for storing things like extra bottles of water, snacks and such.
This is a kind of a covered, wooden bridge. Lots of surprises along this great trail!
We entered at the top, from Dillingham St going down to Convention and Trade Center's arch, where the trail starts. You see the initial red brick paved path along the river, where that circle is.
We were biking southbound.
We were biking southbound.

There are lots of little streams and bogs that the trail crosses, but always alongside the Chattahoochee river.
My TREK bike resting here against the map of the Chattahoochee RiverWalk.
We're in the center of it, where the red arrow is and to the right you see the city of Columbus.
The river is the divide between the state of Georgia and Alabama.
Right above my steering wheel you see Fort Benning and that's where we're going...
Nice view of the Chattahoochee River here and to the left is Alabama.
Yep, you come across this sign along the Chattahoochee RiverWalk - CAUTION ALLIGATOR HABITAT!
Sure hope to never encounter one...
Here my husband Pieter is biking and you clearly see how wide this RiverWalk is.
Starting with red bricks in the city of Columbus and here it is more towards Fort Benning area.
We're headed towards this special Gazebo that is near Bull Creek (written top right).

Pieter resting on that bench and I climbed atop this concrete table with benches. Right behind me is Bull Creek visible.
There are plenty of resting benches along this RiverWalk!
We're now headed for Fort Benning...
Here we are under the dome at National Infantry Museum in Fort Benning.
Nice for getting a bite to eat and for using the bathroom!
There are no bathrooms along the RiverWalk and after some 15 km of biking and lots of water, you really like to use one.
So we biked back again to Columbus and really enjoyed this!
Thanks for your visit and comment!
