Today was a beautiful sunny day, with light winds and temps in the 40s. I rode one of my favorite routes - the South Mpls Loop, as I call it. It's my usual route if I'm looking to get on the bike for a quick ride. It has the river, the creek, the lakes, and the Midtown Greenway... all of which make for a fun ride with interesting people and great scenery.
Overall the trails weren't as wet as I expected, and the fenders did a good job of keeping me dry whenever I came across puddles. There's still a fair amount of snow left to melt so it might be a little while before things are dry enough for me to ditch the fenders.
The route takes me across the Sabo Bridge, which is one of the cooler bridges in the area. It is a single tower cable suspension bridge that takes Midtown Greenway users over Hiawatha Ave and the Light Rail line. If I'm not in a hurry I usually spend a couple minutes checking out the view while I'm up there.
One last pic of just the suspension cables of the bridge and the power lines. I kinda like this one...
I'm hoping for more warm, dry days in the near future. One thing was obvious from today's ride... I need to get more miles in because I'm really out of shape.
