Random Biking iPhone Pictures... from the past couple weeks

 Here are some random iPhone pictures I took during the last week or two that I haven't posted on this blog, but I have posted them to my FB page usually as I ride.

These aren't high quality images that I would watermark, but they document some different things on my rides.
Getting ready for my ride, A Ride of Two Cities, on 11-04-17. There was about 2 inches of snow at my place, so I was surprised there wasn't any snow in Minneapolis. There were five of us riding this day.
The other four riders did the short route and I continued on to ride the rest of the basic route (37 mile) and the additional loop making it a 50 miles day.

We were done with the break now about to head back to South Minneapolis.
Pete's Fall Warmer Carma Coffee ride...

I put together a new 41 miles route , Cold Weather Ride North, for Wednesday, 11-08-17. Jim and Katie showed to do the ride. Katie about 4 or five miles in got a flat tire. 

Some optional finger warmers to consider when riding in colder weather.

Taking a break at the Elm Creek Chalet on Mike's, Trailhead Night Riders, ride on Thursday, 11-09-17. They were making snow and the park road had a good 2 to 3 inches in spots from the drifting snow. I don't know what the windchill was during our ride, but with the NW winds it was making its presence known on the exposed skin. I got home and the actual temperature was 12 degrees.

Steve said he was posting a picture to FB having people guess where he was at....

Changing tires the morning before my, A ride of Two Cities, ride on 11-11-17.

Some snow before the ride on 11-11-17. There was more snow on the side roads and trails, but most of the snow would melt away during the day.

Paul was the only other rider on 11-11-17. This was this first time riding on the snow. I thought I better get a picture of the snow before it melted.

This was on the Stone Arch Bridge on 11-11-17. I changed up the additional loop from the Saturday before. We got in 51 miles today.

Many of you have passed this near the Bohemian Flats area in Minneapolis.

Riding along the Hiawatha Trail.

I put in a new ride from Champlin to Carma Coffee in NE Minneapolis for Sunday, 11-12-17. The ride was called Carma Coffee Run. No one showed up to ride, but I still ride the rides I post. Here I'm stopped in north Minneapolis. It was a long train :)  

Heading across the 42nd Ave Bridge on 11-12-17.

A little further across the bridge looking toward downtown Minneapolis

Taking my break with some coffee at Carma Coffee on 11-12-17.

Making my way back north...

While taking the above picture another train came under the bridge I was on....

Short trail linking one road to another in Fridley. The bridge is over Rice Creek.

Subway to go... close to home so I decided to get a Subway sandwich.
