Couple of consecutive perfect days.

This spot always gets a smile out of me.

Got to love autumn in Minnesota. Too bad it doesn't last about 3 months longer!

It's the parking lot of a strip mall where there is, among other things, a relatively new grocery store and a liquor store. I can guess which one the buggy operator was visiting. I also saw a guy pull in on one of those "skateboard bikes" you see some Amish using. I won't take photos of them out of respect.

Took a short evening ride with a friend before he had to get back on a plane for Michigan. Very breezy (typical) initially, but as the sun began to fall, the breeze slowed down and it was quiet and calm.

This is Christmas Cove. Next time, I'm bringing a pad to sit on and filling my water bottle with merlot.

It’s always a great day when you get a chance to ride with Jerry Adams. Jerry has figured out how to ride all around the City of Charlotte on bike friendly roads and trails. I thought riding a route like that would be impossible. However we started north of Charlotte and completely circled downtown and even rode down to I485 just north of Pineville. His routes use a combination of trails, greenways, roads with bike lanes, subdivisions, a few sidewalks and even little single track.

A couple of Jerry’s buddies, Greg and Oren joined us. We rode 50 miles on our gravel bikes and not once did it feel like we were on roads with heavy traffic. Lunch was a really good fried chicken sandwich at Bossys on Freedom Dr. Right next to Bossys is a newish BBQ/Brewery that definitely deserves a visit.

My hats off to Charlotte for continuing to add cycling infrastructure and connect various trails together. It certainly doesn’t happen overnight and while there is still much more to do, they’ve continued to chip away at it. What a really fun day!!!


Murals all around Charlotte. These were behind some buildings.

Greg supervising the flat repair.

See the white sealant on the path?
