I was supposed to ride the river today en route to Brooklyn but alas I had to settle for a shorter route in my own borough. Nice photo and that is a nice commute.

I ride along the river, so the headwind can be strong and cold.

After 3 days riding in heat and hills to and from the TDU my legs are toasted. Rode a hybrid the first 2 days and the Basso today.

I only saw 3 retro roadies among hundreds of carbon dung.






Cadel leads but finishes the stage second, some at the back were ready to walk.


Seemingly endless stream of spectators returning to town.

First ride in a week, snow, sleet, and slush...still felt great to be out.

Metric century in January. That doesn't happen often in Minnesota. Rode the Poprad from my place to the Minneapolis lakes, and then back through St Paul. Temps in the upper 30's, and low winds made for a nice day out.

Obligatory Minnehaha falls picture (frozen falls today)


Interesting foot bridge along the creek


View of Minneapolis skyline from along the lake path (that was slow since they had walkers sharing the bike path due to construction)


Where have I seen this lately...?


The crashed ice downhill course, races tonight, party after


A view of the St Paul skyline, with Minneapolis off in the distance to the right

I'm intentionally saving that destination for warmer temps and longer days. It looks like a great stop, but I'm not so sure I'd trust myself to keep riding after stopping.

It's right next to a major bike route that runs from Como area all the way to the new Dinkytown Greenway.

That eventually connects to the path along the Mississippi river near the U of M and the Walker Art Center.

The Surly Brewery has a 1.5 acre outdoor beer garden that will be a real treat this summer.

I'm getting over a nasty cold+tummy bug and hadn't ridden in a week, so just rode with husband & kiddo over to a neighborhood park -- less than a mile each way, and coming back up the hill to our house made me queasy all over again, but it was sunny and mid-60s today, perfect weather for a family bike ride.

The Breakfast Ride was canceled Saturday morning due to cold temps. So they did a Lunch Ride instead. By the time we finished it was warming up nicely, almost 60. This pic was taken on my way home... Industrial Chic.

Beautiful weather with record highs in Seattle on Sunday. RogerM and I met up and did an all day ramble.


I rode my fixed gear, 114 miles and 4500ft gained according to Rogers’ Garmin. I was really tired when I got home. I think Roger fared better. As we were riding up the false flat on the Snoqualmie Valley Trail at about mile 85 I started wishing I had his gears as he shifted down and pulled away from me....

It was a great day

nb, that sure looks like fun.

We aren't riding anywhere for a month or two. It's probably gonna' take that long to clear the snow away.

I'm just piling onto northbend's post above. It was a great day for a ride. I'm pretty happy to have ridden 108 miles in a day, this time of year. However, Matt is a true superhuman. He rode a few miles more than I, all on his fixed gear bike. He went up some pretty big hills on that bike without missing a beat. He's a beast.

Here's some of my pictures:







I think he was starting to get worn down at this point..
