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.

    • The very fact that these drugs are illegal keeps the prices so high, there is a huge risk for anyone dealing them so they need to make a boat load of money for it to be worth the risk. Legalizing things always brings down the prices and makes the black market $$$ not worth the effort.
    •   The "war on drugs", by which I take it you mean keeping them illegal (feel free to correct me if that is not your meaning) reduces the opportunity and raises the price for addictive drugs.   There are perhaps other policies that might work, but treating Heroin or Cocaine like ibuprofin doesn't seem like a good idea.     So, what do you mean by "end the war on drugs".   Go Colorado for "hard drugs"?   Treat them like California does alcohol (sold in every grocery store, and some convenience stores)?  Make them prescription?   Decriminalize possession of small amounts? 
    •     You judge everyone by their race and religion ?      
    • Years ago brother and I at our hunting cabin for a few days of grouse hunting.  Second morning we up and at 'em just as grey dawn settling down on the woods.  We hunted up and down the hills and through the brush and brambles seeking an explosive brown ball leaping skyward. Nothing. Not a feather seen. Later, after breakfast and chores ,brother sitting in the little outhouse with the door open,  enjoying the warmth of the sunrise and contemplating life in the woods when with a flutter and a cluck-cluck,  a nice big grouse landed on a small bush about five feet in front of the outhouse. Brother looks at grouse;  grouse looks at brother. They spent   time examining each other until my brother made a move and the grouse disappeared. We didn't see him around the place for the rest of our stay.   But we found some of his cousins.
    •   Uh, no. You have stated that people should prove their own claims. I don't have the time or the inkling to go through thousands of posts to "prove" it to you so I guess it's just fake news.
    •   Uh, no.   I believe I said that people should post attributions of stuff they quote.   
    •   I could post a certain song by Aerosmith, but I won't......    And yer dang right I'm gonna!
    •   1. He's one of those scary brown people 2. He's a scary Mooslim, not a god fearing Christian 3. Donald Trump sort of likes him.       How would I know? You're the one who brought it up. I thought you always said that it is the obligation of the poster to prove the facts that they post?
