The River Bottoms on a Quiet Sunday Afternoon

I've been riding the River Bottoms trails for nearly 12 years. It's a near-magical place situated between suburbs of Minneapolis/St Paul and in the shadow of the MSP airport. I remember the first time I made my way down there on my Mukluk fat bike. It seemed surreal. It's a gem of a place to ride and leave the troubles of the world behind.

Shadow Play

My fall riding isn't complete without a loop to the river bottoms on my gravel bike. I was racing the sun and my shadow Saturday afternoon, arriving home a few minutes after sunset.

Church!

I've been missing my rides. I saw the forecast for a light southeast wind and knew I had to do this 55 mile (mostly) gravel route today. The temp was hovering a shade above freezing the entire ride. I came upon a guy tinkering with his planes in his garage and had to circle back for a closer look and a chat. He said he was going up flying soon and would look for me from the air. If our paths ever crossed, I never did see him.

RI DOT has contracted with three high speed Ferries, running every thirty minutes from Bristol to Providence RI. A bunch of us took advantage. A 15 minute, very fast boat ride followed by a 15 mile bike return ride on the East Bay Bike Path.

Bike and Brew Ride. January 6, 2024. Since it was a morning ride, the brew was coffee.

The slab is on the extension next to the wind turbines.

April in February

It wasn't easy trying to figure out how to dress for yesterday's ride. The temp went from the upper 40s to the mid-60s (8 - 18c) while I was out there, and blustery! Feeling the sun on my face again was a nice bonus!

As an airplane guy I loved the Champ and Luscombe pictures KG, and the VOR was funny too!

Heres one of our group road rides, Im #8, wait for it.
