Bicycle adventure: Thanksgiving/Black Friday (Slideshow)

A tale of two bicycle rides: a bucolic pedal up Fall Creek to visit Fort Ben; and a tour of waste facilities on the south side of Indianapolis downtown, on Black Friday.

When I learned it was going to be a beautiful, warm Thanksgiving day, I decided to ride to somewhere I'd never bicycled before: Fort Ben. Starting from the near northside, I bicycled there and back with friends on a lovely day, encountering my friend Sonny Bates - on a horse!

It made sense the next day to celebrate Black Friday not by going to malls or shops to buy things, but to tour the waste facilities of Indianapolis, from Covanta Energy to the pollution emitted by the Harding Street coal fired plant.

I'd like to make this Black Friday ride an annual thing. Anybody with me?
