I live in Spring Lake Park, just turned 51, am in pretty good physical condition, and love doing outdoor activities. I'm new to Meetup, and am excited about the opportunities for group activities that it offers.
I prefer fairly fast rides. I average around 13-15 mph on streets, but can definitely manage faster rides if the trail is good. I have a hybrid bike, so it's not as fast as a road bike, but does quite well. My preference at this point is at least 10 miles, up to 30 or 40.
I prefer railroad bed trails and/or off-street trails. I haven't explored too many of the trails around the Twin Cities or Minnesota yet, but am anxious to do so.
Road Bike Paved trails
I'm sort of a newbie to biking, but am hooked. I've been doing mostly solo riding this summer, but have managed a couple of 20-30 mile rides with friends, and am looking forward to more group rides.
