Spokane Quickie

First impressions: Fantastic fall foliage, clean, bike-friendly city, easy to navigate, nice parks, incredible vistas, great centennial trail, rainy

Arrived at the small airport at noon, rented a car, and headed directly to Spoke ‘N Sport. Pete set me up on a hybrid for my quick tour of Spokane. Just a half hour after landing, I’m pedaling through Riverfront Park, meandering by Gonzaga University where the fall’s display was in its full glory.

Despite the brisk, wet weather, there were many runners (one stud without a shirt), bikers, and skateboarders about. In addition to nature’s displays, the city also features many outdoor art sculptures.

Got in some great views of Spokane Falls and cruised an upscale neighborhood on Summit Road before the rain became more insistent and I had to turn back. Next stop Coeur d’alene.
