It finally felt like spring today... it hit 54 degrees, the sun was warm, and the winds were light. I went for a ride around the confluence of the Minnesota and Mississippi Rivers, and boy are they running high.
Here's a pic of the entrance to one of my favorite trails - the Minnesota River State Trail.
The trail runs along the floodplain on the other side of the tunnel. It'll be a while until I can ride this trail again, but it should make for a fun adventure once the water recedes. The Poor Man's Pug has its Hookworms mounted and ready to hit the sand.
I also added some extensions to the seatpost mounted fender on my poor weather/errand bike (somewhat visible in the pic above). Still need to make a couple changes, but I'll post some pics of the final product soon.
