The City of Lakes route is only doable when there are few people on the trails. It is a roundabout of the four Minneapolis lakes - Hariet, Calhoun, Lake of the Isles and Cedar Lake. Peak time the Lakes are busy with walkers, runners, inline skaters and the like. Granted, there are walking and biking paths that parallel each other, the inline skaters and slow bikers (especially w/ kids) can slow you down and be a great annoyance. So, this is a good time of the year to take the Lakes Circuit and have fun.
I rode Bullit and took the SW Corridor down to Lake Calhoun and veered east off the trail at 38th st.(?) to have a coffee at CRC (Cars-R-Coffins coffeehouse) on Lyndale Ave. When I finished my two Italian roasts and a chocolate chip coookie Iheaded back to Lake Clhoun to tour the Lakes and head home.
The weather was November chilly with a SEastern headwind, but overal it wasn't a diifcult ride, even though I took a muscle relaxer earlier in the day for a very kinky neck.
