Early 2017/2018 Winter Season Minnesota

 The first three days of riding after the first real winter storm of the 2017/2018 season.

Tuesday, 12-05-17: The morning after getting 2 inches of snow on top of ice. The Seven Evergreen SL is ready to go...

Decided to stop and take a picture. I normally don't ride this road in the summer...usually only in the winter.

I'm finally going with the wind on a gravel road. The temperatures were in the teens with a very strong NW wind.

The Seven Evergreen SL

The Seven Evergreen with the "Stone Structure" that Taddeus Giddings built in the 1920's. This is the last of three "stone buildings" on the Rum River in Anoka, MN. I've taken other images from this vantage point, but the snow adds to the image.

A road in Anoka. Many of the side roads were mostly ice/snow covered after the storm.

I had to get off my bike a walk a short section of this sidewalk along Ferry St. in Anoka. I try not to ride this section of the road north of the Champlin/Anoka Bridge over the Mississippi River because of some bad experiences with motorist in the past.

Thursday, 12-07-17: Another cold day. It was 10 degrees when I started and only went up a couple degrees. Today was a 25 mile ride.
