First Ride!

6 posts in this topic

Finally got the bike down off the hooks today. Only rode about 10 miles but was good to get the dust off. Could have done without the howling winds though.

Was on the Gateway trail near Oakdale/North St. Paul. Still several patches of ice/snow/slush on the trail. Probably be a while before I head out that way again, maybe the rains forcast the next few days will take care of it.

I'm hoping to make the first trek out this week, maybe tomorrow night but I know there is talk of rain. Otherwise I have plans to head out with a friend Friday night out in Woodbury or around there, where is that trail off of? Maybe her and I will check it out this week.

My bike is still in hibernation but if the weather stays nice I will probably get it out in a few days...

Gateway trail runs north and east from the intersection of hwys 36 and 694. Easiest way to find it is right across 36 from the Fleet Farm. The trail crosses Hadley Ave just south of 36. The Gateway trail runs from almost the State Capitol to well north of Stillwater.

I've gotten about ten rides in so far the past couple of months. Can't wait till it warms up some more.

Thank you. Now if it would just stop raining/snowing. Oh well, I'm doing some spring cleaning so I'm ready when the nicer weather hits smile.

    • Yards lookin' good, boober! 
    • Dishwasher for me if I don't get to them right away like thirdeye.
    • I sprayed mine almost a month ago.  An ortho product that seamed to work.  All that's left is the dead grass it choked out.
    • Now that rubechat forums are history....   Lets light this place up...Rubes!
    • We spent the past week in Door County Wisconsin on vacation with 4 other couples and our campers. I had it all lined up for 6 members of our group to go out on a chartered fishing trip in the early morning of Thursday. The charter called me at 8:00 Wed. evening to inform me that the boat had broken down and wouldn't be fixed until later that day and there were no available re-scheduling opportunities until Monday.    GGGRRRRRRRR!!!!!!!!!!
    • Well looks like the draft came and went without much fireworks, sounds like Fletcher didn't like any of the offers so he is going to wait to make a move. Hard to see us fitting under the cap or filling out a full team without moving Scandella or Pommers so we will see what happens.

      Of course drafting from the 3rd round on doesn't lead to many super exciting players but it sound like we got a couple midgets with some skill and several projects. Our big off season move might have been keeping everyone through expansion. 
    • My only concern is the timing of all of this. We seem to be loading up for a run in the next year or two but the Warriors are still sitting there stacked beyond belief.  Can we add enough and develop our young guys enough to be a legit threat to the Warriors.  Lebron, Irving, and Love barely made the Warriors break a sweat in the finals.  I'd like to see them time their final acquisitions to correspond with the end of the Warriors run. 
    • Maybe line up all the non-compliant VW's and gas 'em all out with diesel fumes. 
    • Glad Lavine is gone! Added nothing but slam dunks to the team. I've been out of town for the past week, so I was very delighted to hear about this trade today.
    • Not unless they ban the toothpick crossbow here too. Takes those beetles out clean.
