I left without a real plan for how far I'd bike or where I'd go and let myself just decide as I went along. Luckily I am super familiar with the trail system in Minneapolis after logging hundred of miles running along the paths so I had plenty of options. Here are some pictures of what I saw!
|Heading out along the Mississippi, which was smooth as glass!|
|After winding around a couple of lakes, I headed back into downtown. I love the prairie grass that grows along this trail!|
|My favorite view of the Minneapolis skyline! It was even more beautiful in person!|
|Biking makes me happy|
|The view of St. Anthony Falls at the end of my ride. I feel so lucky to call this neighborhood home.|
Maybe with time I will form expectations for biking, but I hope that is not the case. I put a lot of pressure (too much pressure, some might argue) on myself in many/most other aspects of my life, so I am really hoping that biking will be something that can just be plain fun.
