I got my long ride in today, a great day for flying kites or sailing. I had to be creative in finding a route that starts into the wind so I don't die on the way home. Normally from SW MPLS, I head west to Orono. Today I went to Plymouth and Maple Grove. I have to give Vicksburg Lane 1 out of 5 stars as a bike route. It's quite hostile, with 50 mph speed limits, sections of no shoulder and lots of stoplights. Back to the drawing board. If you rode today, hope you stayed out of the wind!
