Yesterday I went on a really cold solo ride. Some of the usual roads were covered in ice or snow, some impassable. It made for an interesting day, but honestly it turned out to be pretty enjoyable. We’re definitely getting an actual winter here, so you gotta just take the good with the bad.
Sheila and I rode a bike path loop through Minneapolis this evening. We started at the lakes, went west on the bike Greenway to West River Road and came back via Minnehaha Parkway.
Near Minnehaha Falls we saw a dozen of the four-passenger rental bike things. The one you see here was blocking our way. We could not pass because of the fence and wall on the path. The dad who was steering apologized. Sheila said no problem. Then she saw the young boy in the back seat wasn’t pedaling. Jokingly she said “Hey, the kid in back isn’t pedaling!” The little boy glared at her.
A most appropriate beer of the night is The Randonneur Summer Saison from Minneapolis brewer Fulton. I just love saying summer saison. I could probably say it over and over, with different accents, until nearby people would slap me.
I bet this one, with it’s unnecessary
definite article in front of the name would be popular with alumni of The Ohio State University. The beer is The delicious.
Right now it is pouring rain. Hard. Any of you in the Twin Cities reading this might not believe me. The radar shows this cell is located pretty much only over my neighborhood.
