Two Days of Riding

Posted by skiumahgopher on June 23, 2008

On Sunday, a double shot of Mississippi Choo Chew & Tour Day Kota.  Mississippi Choo Chew went From Mendota Plaz to the SSP Regional Trail, across the Wacouta Bridge, up to Point Douglas.  Then down Warner-Shepard, across 35E, and back to the plaza via Wachler & Evergreen Knoll.

After lunch it was Tour Day Kota.  A trip to Salem Church Road, and over to Babcock, and down Courthouse Road to 96th.  Then it was up Rich Valley to Tyne and Dodd Road.  A right on Cliff to Schulze Lake and the Lebanon Hills Visitor Center.

After a rest stop, it was up and down the hills of Inver Grove Heights, then home.

Total miles (including commute): 66, pace: about 16 MPH Cities visited: Mendota Heights, West St. Paul, South St. Paul, Newport, St. Paul, Sunfish Lake, Inver Grove Heights, and Eagan.

On Monday it was Urban Wildlife again.  On Monday the city of Eagan sealcoated Dodd, so we got creative and avoided as much as possible.

Miles (including commute): 37 pace: 15.1 Cities visited: Bloomington, Eagan, Mendota Heights, Inver Grove Heights, Rosemount, and Apple Valley.
