If there are any riders out there in the twin cities area perhaps you have ridden the Cannon Valley Trail. I ride it as frequently as I can. It is never boring. For those riders who are planning someday to travel to the TC area I recommend it. If you have ridden it you know how great it is.
Yesterday I rode it...saw a fox, a deer, the eagle nest, the usual wildbirds, and missed a baby rattler sunning. Beautiful day;busy even for a weekday.
I ride a cyclegenius raven and a burley limbo, btw.
