It is about the bike today

My goal is to bike commute throughout the winter - that's right, the MINNESOTA winter. I figure if I can do that I can do anything and we should be able to become a one car family again**

Anyways the last few weeks have been chilly but relatively okay. The clear skies have allowed some pretty spectacular scenery even on my short little jaunt. Here are a few shots of the geese (& ducks) who are using the local pond as a resting place on their way south.

Here is a bonus shot of our new law enforcement center/jail being built in the downtown for those of you who are familiar with the area.

Essentially you have the twin towers on one end and the Paramount on the other - everything in between was torn down for the project.

AND please be safe- don't bike on bad roads in the winter!

i would have to go about 5 miles out of the way to find a bad road - not really worth it when my commute is only 2 miles right now.

Have you got a face mask to keep your face from freezing in those -98 degree wind chills?
