Gopher State Report

The State of Sports, Bicycling & Politics in the Gopher State

Back in the Saddle

Posted by skiumahgopher on June 17, 2008

Last night’s ride:  Urban Wildlife (Rosemount).  Starting at the Airport Hilton, the ride goes over the Minnesota River crossing parallel to 494. Working our way to Delaware via Mendota Heights Road, we went to Wescott, then Dodd Road.  After a jog on Red Pine, we get to Highway 3.  Turning right on 145th, we start back.  Instead of straight to Diamond Path, we went on a bunch of residential streets.  After getting to Diamond Path, we hit the rollers, both on Diamond Path, then Johnny Cake Ridge Road.  A left on Deerwood, and a right on Blackhawk gets us ready for the home stretch.  Blue Cross, Heritage, Letendre, then finally Highway 13.  Up the hill on 13 to Mendota Heights road, back on the river crossing to the hotel.

My average was 16.5 the wind died down at the end, thank god.

Tonight: Gears, Tears & Fears.  Back Later.
