I was up at o dark thirty to meet my C2C friend, Tom Fleming, at his house across from Lafayette Park.
Tom was a remarkable St. Louis historian and he was riding along giving me all the pertinent history about the places we were cycling through. He was amazing. A bridge engineer James Eads was instrumental in constructing some of our Civil War era bridges and some ships.
Tom could not have been any more fun and generous with his time. Much love brother. Dinner on the Hill. Tour de Wildwood tomorrow, a morning event, then to Cinton, Mo and the Katy Trail. Peace out Tres
