My new bike commute is probably the best commute of my life.
Section 1: Rolling on a chill residential street with a nice little warm-up climb. Nice houses with glimpses of the lake below.
Section 2: A MUP running along a beautiful, sculpted creek running in a little glen between the nicest neighborhoods of Minneapolis. Trees, lovely curves, picturesque foot bridges, lots of places to stop and enjoy after work beers, and various sections of bootleg single track. It’s a fucking delight, and hardly anyone was using it this morning at 8:15. Only dark mark is some jabroni named a bunch of Strava sections after porn stars.
Section 3: A lovely bike-only section around a lake. It’s delightful.
I do think this commute will be challenging this winter. I think I need a fat bike now.
