Photo Friday – Spring has sprung

April 17, 2009

It’s been said before, but this was a long winter.  I heard on the news yesterday that it was the first time in 6 months that we were above 65 degrees.   Seriously!?   Considering my life passion is bike riding, sometimes I wonder why I/we live here in MN.

While the winter is long, there are so many little things that I love about where we live.   Whenever I think like that all I have to do is look around.  I wrote earlier in the week that I got to ride dirt for the first time in 2009.  I also told you that I was continually looking down at the ground as the sun illuminated all these bundles of green.   I couldn’t believe the colors.   I love seeing the beauty in our seasons.

In other news, I’m skipping the Friday Morning Breakfast Ride.   Instead, I’m hitting Lebanon Hills and Murphy this morning.    Both opened yesterday.   I need dirt.    I may post up later if I get any pics.  I may not though as I’ve been waiting to ride both these places for months.  I may just ride.    Just ride dirt.  I like the sound of that.

Happy Friday folks.   I hope you enjoy your weekend.

Ride your bike!  Take some pictures!

    I try hard not to be jealous of others but, Leb and Murph? Come on Gnat! Do you have to be so showy? Hope you have a great time. Wish I could be there.

    I too skipped breakfast (actually took a cinnamon roll as big as my head to go) so I could ride dirt, but I have to wait till this afternoon. For me that hardest choice of the day is where to ride, Lebanon or Murphy.

    Good to know the Leb and Murph rides are open. I am looking forward to getting up there again to ride those great trails.

    Well…..Not to rub it in, but I just finished my 4+ hour ride. I rode to Murphy and saw the sunrise. I then road to Leb. Both perfect.

    Now that’s a way to start the day.

    Get out and ride dirt!
