As noted last week, riding was good to me. I had 3 killer rides in a row. All different. All on the same bike, my El Mariachi. Day one was single track. Day two was bikepacking set up super commute. Day three was coffee and sunrise with my friend Ben. I topped it off over the weekend with a family ride on the Minnetonka Regional Trail, again on my El Mariachi.
As if that recipe wasn't good enough, last Friday Ben showed me a new route out of Northfield, MN. I had passed by one of the roads before while driving but never ridden it due to the fact that it's only accessible by pavement. Not that pavement is bad or anything like that, but I had no known reason to stray from the almost all gravel route I know and love. Well, now I do. This is a killer route filled with beautiful scenery and lots of hills. I can't wait to go back.
Hope you all had a great weekend. I did. I just enjoyed my time with my family because starting later this week, my life gets crazy. That will make sense shortly, but soon I will have mountains in some of my pictures. Looking forward to having grand back drops and something other than corn and gravel roads in my pics.
I better get going to work. Busy day today, but this is going to be one heck of a good week.
