To promote cycling as a viable means of transport. Saving gas, staying healthy, taking a car off the road, and enjoying the beauty of Minnesota.
One last little gift from winter today: a cleat totally seized in my winter boot.
Apparently I forgot to grease the threads on this side when I installed them and now, five months of salt and freezing conditions later, they were not moving. Drilling them out was the only option.
Don't forget the grease! #mncyclist#wintercycling#mnwinter#crankbrothers#onelesscar#wintergift
Pretty soon there will be color in this feed again. Specifically green! Enjoy the last of the snow as it melts away this weekend.

Sadly, today the weather is winning. The city is hard at work clearing snow from our historic #aprilblizzard but with many bike trails still unplowed and the streets in dangerous conditions this will be one cyclist who will be driving a car to work today. At least I am lucky enough to have that option!
Not all of us ride to work for fun and fitness, many ride because a car is unaffordable and transit doesn't work for them. Remind your car driving friends about these riders, ask them to give them the space they need to get safely home to their family.
