This Citadel building is the old Uniroyal Tire plant. When I was a kid, the plant was in operation and the building wasn't painted and the glass was clear. It's a pretty sweet building. Or it was. Now it's an outdoor mall for clothing outlets. I guess that's still better than having this building torn down for a Costco or something.

This made me wonder what happened to the old Firestone tire plant on Firestone Boulevard. That is a beautiful building as well. I'll scope it out on another ride.

I got a rear flat on my way to Citadel:

I normally fix a flat somewhere off the beaten path but the neighborhood was so bad that I decided to fix the flat in the middle of the sidewalk right beside an intersection because I didn't want to get mugged. Aaron, thanks again for the replacement seal for the Campy metal head.
