Blue Cruize was my worthy steed for the day. 20 miles on this thing and I wasn't any worse for the wear! I love this bicycle.
Here's the route I took-- as you can see, just a straight shot up Gratiot out of Detroit and into Mt. Clemens.
Great script font.
I love the cast iron frame.
Amazing chrome font.
Car washes have the best signs, I swear.
This font is kind of cool because it looked so different from anything else I saw that Sunday. Very neat.
Looks like someone did a touch up with the "Phone Cards" bit.
Hands down my favorite color combo on any wall I saw Sunday. The chartreuse and the chrome font are just poppin'!
This one was cool too, not only for its exposed brush strokes, but because it was so damn weathered.
At the end of the day, my body was aching from traveling the 20 or so miles on foot and on bicycle. I had seen more of Gratiot in one day than I ever have in my 26 years of living in this region. When I laid my head down for sleep at the end of the day, i could close my eyes and see a slide show of all of these fonts rotating through my head, the chrome fonts, the scripts, the block letters, each one delivering a different message, painted by a different hand, from a time long long ago. Long live the hand painted signs!
