Bike to work MN@biketoworkmn

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!

Pretty soon there will be color in this feed again. Specifically green! Enjoy the last of the snow as it melts away this weekend.

The streets are still pretty gnarly out there today! Wednesday, April 18th.

The trails were in much better condition today!

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.

Lake Bde Maka Ska, Minneapolis.
Pronounced beh-DAY mah-KAH skah, this is the original Dakota name. It means, "White Earth Lake"

Streets today were compacted snow, surprisingly good for riding actually, while the trails had been plowed & with a little help from the spring sun were pretty clear.
Given how much snow we got yesterday it was not a bad day to be on a bike!

Riding home from work last night turned out to be easier than I expected. Maybe an inch of snow on this section of trail, if that. It was peaceful, quiet, car free, and a great workout.
This is the section heading north, by the river. @pryesbrewing can be seen to the left at the start of the video.

Riding to work today, the trails on #victoryparkway & #theodorewirthparkway were not plowed yet and essentially unrideable, unless you had a fatbike. I ended up on the roads which were not much better. Lots of potholes and impatient drivers!
Be careful out there!

After riding home from the #jeremymessersmith concert last night as the snow fell, in the seconds it took to bring my bike inside the wet snow between my tires and fenders solidified and locked my wheels up.
