Today's ride to Ludlow served up some seriously rough pavement. It was a short day, in terms of mileage, but the rough road and the wind made it a substantial ride. The popular kitsch item on today's ride was the Bagdad Cafe -- a remote roadside cafe where the movie 'Bagdad Cafe' was filmed.
I enjoy the touristy things, but I am mostly interested in the abandoned and burned out stuff. I found a bit of that today, and expect a lot more tomorrow on the way out to Needles. I may try to bring the good camera with me for the Needles ride, but the route is 110 miles and we are not expecting favorable winds. Besides, if the road conditions are anything like today's ride, Buster might show up and steal my camera.
I guess today is another short blog day, as I need to be up at 4:30 tomorrow. Enjoy the photos...
