Most Friday nights we have a group ride that heads out from S.MPLS about 930PM to parts known and unknown. Usually about 15-30 miles at a medium pace, sometimes bike paths, sometimes dirt, a few times both. Usually there are a couple of beer stops(BYOB). As the fall has been getting colder we have been dropping riders here and there. This last Friday it was just me and JZ. We did a little spin followed by some fire and a beer or two at a friend’s place. If you want in on some riding post up or hit the MORBID FaceplacePage and I will get you added.
Sunday was a chubby bike day. I met up with PC at Angry Catfish about 930AM and we did a little exploring along the river and Minnehaha Lower Glen for a bit before heading out towards Bloomington. We cruised along at a pretty comfortable pace and had some wildlife spottings along the way. Saw a nice Buck and Doe standing their ground, we stood there for 4 or 5 minutes and they just stared right back. We rode down to 9 Mile Creek while stopping at one of the other creek crossings for a Surly Wet that PC had brought along. That hit the spot.
On our way back from 9 Mile we spotted a racoon that wouldn’t get off the trail, I rode around him, within 3 feet and he just hissed at me. Guessing there was some rabies involved there. Made it back and was a bit tired when I got home. I ate everything within 2 feet of me. I figure we did 40+ miles and some good hiking along the river in spots. It was a great day for a ride.
The other big thing that happened this weekend was my little one got a new ride. Thanks again to the guys at Angry Catfish, she loves it.
Join us for a ride sometime. -PR
