Just slow down, take a chill pill, appreciate the fact we live in a city that will close roads for a "fun ride", enjoy the sights, ride safe, help those that need help and be a part of our wonderful cyclingcentric community.

I headed out to Hagg Lake instead this morning. It was my first time making that ride. Everything I read said it is very crowded on summer weekends, but today I saw maybe a dozen each of cyclists and motorists. I don't know if it was because I was in and out of there before 11:30 or because of the cool, overcast weather or because everybody was at Bridge Pedal, but today was a great day to ride around Hagg Lake.
My wife and I went to the Bridge Pedal for the first time this year. It was very crowded but as you long as you be easy and watch what was going it was a great ride and good site seeing. Nice to see the city from the bridges and stop to take pictures. Usually you are doing anywhere from 35-60 across those bridges so the view was much better.
