I went out for my First road ride of the year. Being in Minnesota make it a short riding season but I will take advantage of the warm weather so early in the year. I went out for a ride to downtown St. Paul (east side) from school on Summit Ave in St. Paul (west side). The trail goes right along the mighty Mississippi river the whole way making for a scenic ride. I went up to the U of M first to lengthen and enjoy my ride. Nothing like having people look at you like you are crazy when it is 48 degrees out and you are on a bike with bike shorts and a jersey.
16.8 mph pace
Here are some photos that I took while on a quick break on the path by downtown.
