Wheeeeew a great ride....cruising across the Hennepin Bridge at over 30mph...as soon as I climbed on the Poprad, I realized how much I missed riding it in the past week - its gonna be a long winter....

A lot of errand today...also, I changed my flat handlebar to a Bontrager Crowbar...too much money for what it is, but it is wider than the flat bar, which handles much better and is more comfortable...old bar - 56cm...new bar 60cm with a 5 degree rise....

It was nice not having to pull a little dude around...but then again he is great company and he likes being pulled...I came to the conmclusion while riding around today that I am going to utilize my '84 Trek 500 for an Extracycle, so...the project begins!!!

I had to ride to Circuit City, which is right off France just before you hit 494. It was hell getting to Circuit City on the west side of France Ave....I took Blake Rd to Vernon to Wooddale Ave to Valley View Rd and that is where the hell started....after I crossed under HW62 I had to zigzag in a weird parallel to France Ave....Edina needs to take a serious look at their biking routes!!!!
Is it OK for Wells Fargo to restrict bikes from going through the drive-up window?
I was a bit purturbed when the Wells Fargo on Exelsior in St. Louis Park, made me go inside and refused to service me when I pulled up...even though the week before I had done it without an issue. They told me I was allowed to take my bike inside because - as usual - there were no bike racks. So I went in and rode my bike inside over to the teller and parked my bike and then rode across the bank on my way out...
I forgot about it until this week when I pulled up - in my car - beside one of those big ugly stupid and rediculously loud Harley's and he got served just fine...then I thought - why can't I on my bike????

Quick ride before putting the kids to bed...beautiful night for a ride...unfortunately, there are too many people who ride at dusk without the proper lighting...riding at dusk can be very dangerous...especially on the trails.

I adore my sons, Liam and Thatcher, so anytime I get to do something we all enjoy is great. Liam and I took a nice long ride today...the weather was gorgeous...we stopped for a treat at Freewheel and to pick up a part at Penn Cycle...we also stopped for a rest along the creek. I let Liam walk around in the water and play for awhile...good times!!
