|Took a ride tonight right after the bus dropped me off from work.
One of the nicest days in Minneapolis in WEEKS - 60 degrees
and sunny believe it or not, after weeks of frigid hell on wheels.
I didn't have a ton of time but grabbed the camera anyway and
off I went. I mostly rode until I reached a certain point - I hit 700
miles on the odometer on my bike and snapped a pic.
As the sun started going down I started snapping some pics of
the sunset near my old elementary school I went to as a kid.
It was actually quite nice. The camera's CPU driven software was
going bonkers and some of the pictures look like the light level is
really high and it's not, it was really dark and cool and nice.
Here I am setting off on the trip. It literally looks like night in this shot.

|I REALLY need some lights!
Ironically, I rode the entire ride in shorts and a short sleeve
jersey. I doubt it will be this nice tomorrow though it's supposed
to be close.

|I travel to Minneapolis once or twice a year and it is a great city. I feel for you in the winter.|| |
