    Thanks Zeke. Great route and weather, perfect way to spend a Saturday morning. Good coffee before the ride and getting to pet a beautiful Blue Great Dane after the ride, really made this ride and morning special.

    It was cold riding over to Caribou this morning, but the coffee sure warmed me up. It was a nice sunny morning for a ride, good hills, nice neighborhoods, and a crazy intersection that had me baffled for a while. Thanks for coming everyone.

    Feel free to join me for hot chocolate or coffee inside Caribou Coffee before the ride tomorrow. I'll be there about 8:30am. It should be a nice day tomorrow.

    This is a different ride than the one I used to do last year. It has some of the same areas, but it is longer and goes further south.
