Once we started to move our legs the cold weather became more manageable. We were able to get to the Duck Creek Greenbelt from Rowlett road and took this multiple use pathway all the way to Centerville Road. From Centerville we were able to get into a residential neighborhood then on to Fifth Street. Fifth Street took us into the heart of Downtown Garland.
We stopped for some grub at a mom and pop breakfast diner called Hubbard's Cupboard. This place was really old timey in appearance and I also liked how they had an outdoor seating area. They are about one bike rack away from being a bike friendly business. Any ideas?

|"Share the Road" signs like these are becoming commonplace in Garland.|
|"We took a picture of this sign because it was funny"|
|I never thought I would see one of these in Garland. Great progress!|
We are looking forward to doing more rides like this on a regular basis. For those who weren't able to attend this ride, there will be other opportunities in the near future. On our list of proposed rides are riding to White Rock Lake and riding from Garland to Sunnyvale. Stay tuned and check out our events page for more information as well as weekly group rides.
