Last week was great. Sunny came up from California and we rode bikes around the city. I showed her the nooks and crannies of nature in this city, as well as some vegan friendly restaurants. I realized after she left we didn’t see any of the museums or artistic aspects of the city, but I will just save that to entice her later (mwahahaha). I really should have taken more photos of her and us, but I just wasn’t thinking about that. We had a great time though and definitely filled our days with adventures.
Sunny and I found a nice beach by the Mississippi that had a nice walking trail running alongside. Seeing the trail made me excited to get a mountain bike for the coming winter. The path might be a little difficult on a single speed (winter + gears = no gears anyway). We also headed to The Depot with Danaca and had some awesome food. The first night though we had to go to Pizza Luce. For me, Pizza Luce really is Minneapolis cuisine. Between that place fueling IndyMedia during the RNC and it being my last hearty meal on my bike ride to South Dakota it just has a lot of awesome memories. Minneapolis, your food rocks.
Some side notes: I finally picked up a GPS and started logging my longer rides. Anything under a few miles though I leave the GPS off the bike so I don’t have to take it off every time I go into a place. According to the data from the last ~10 mile ride I averaged 16.4mph, and I just ordered some clipless pedals on ebay because mine are on the touring bike. My boss is also coming into town tomorrow, and my family later this month, so it looks like this is the time for people to visit the north.
