Icycle Bicycle 2014 and a spectacular Hades tile.

25 miles total in the cold, a very good day. I bumped into DB (whose wife is the former owner of Ruby) at the Casino and we made good conversation along the way to the South Side for the Icycle Bicycle ride.

On my way back into town, I thought I would do the grid ride in search of any remaining tiles. I found these two. 

Allies and Smithfield

 Boy, did this one ever cheer me up from a gloomy mood. Wow, look at the detail! Both of today's finds mention Toynbee Idea!

A spectacular find at Allies and Cherry, aptly placed right across from the Art Institute.

I think I found the best one last, I rode over nearly every asphalt street in the Golden Triangle and made no further discoveries. There are NINE new Hades/Toynbee tiles and a Stikman that I know of.
*sigh* what am I going to look for now?

I went back to the Allies and Market tile and got closeups of the text with the good camera, had Photoshop Panorama them together and adjusted the contrast in the hopes that I'd be able to read it. My eyes hurt now.
I have the documentary on the Toynbee tiles lined up in my Netflix queue.

 I couldn't resist getting this shot.

Goodbye, antlers. Maybe I should add Viking horns or a propeller?
