WOW...we hit 50°F today. Just a hint of spring, because I hear we may have another snow on the way. Along with that the 10 day forecast isn't showing anything near as nice as we had today. It is weather. It will be...weather.
If you could pick them out on the picture above just over the top tube and upstream on the St Croix River were two Swan/Snow Geese. I know last year I walked up stream and jumped some Snow Geese, but I am thinking these may have been Trumpeter Swans. They were far enough away that I couldn't tell with the naked eye. I just went back and blew up that picture...I am going with Trumpeter Swan.
With today's warm temperature, I needed to shed some clothes. That is OK though. That is why that back trunk rack is on there.
Golf anyone?? I think it will be a late start this year.
Those that know me know I do most of my riding alone. Last year I was lucky enough to be able to ride with a couple new friends. This is a road we would ride. One of them called the other day to go for a ride, but it didn't work out for me. I wish it had because I really enjoy the fun. BUT we will get out!!
Can you say wind. I started out with a nice 5 miles right down the throat of mother wind. I then sailed with her at my back for a good 15 miles. And you know what that means. Time to take it on the chin. Yep wind on the fixed gear can be rather challenging. But I am OK with that.
Lunch was served at the 30 mark today.
I chose the 30.30 mark for lunch to bring attention to this. The 30 days of biking http://30daysofbiking.com/pledge It was the 30th of March when I did this ride. I did not sign the pledge last year because I knew I was going to be out of town 2 days. But I did ride all the others. I may sign up this year. Really haven't decided yet. I think the Garmin is probably more accurate at the 31.24 miles. I may have to adjust that computer...or more than likely I grabbed the wrong computer.

Lets get outdoors and have some FUN!!
