Friday night I pulled the snow bike off it's hook, loosened up the rusted front derailleur cable and made sure the wheels go 'round. They did so I was ready to roll in the morning for the first winter FAB Coffee/Donut ride.
Saturday morning I pulled myself off my hook, loosened up the knees and made sure the feet go 'round. They did so I looked outside at the light snow accumulation. I was mildly disappointed the find no accumulation on the pavement.
The snow bike was not necessary.
At the rendezvous I discovered a handful of amply dressed individuals on bicycles.
It was 25 degrees.
We rode. Destination #1 was Legacy Park via the John Thune funded MUP.
Apparently blue was the color of choice for the morning. I wore standard MinusCar black.
Destination #2 was the roundabout at North University Center which might as well be in Fargo for as far as we travelled north into the north wind.
We looked with suspicion and curiosity upon the heavily barricaded plant somewhere out there near 60th & Marion Road.
Destination #3 was biscuits and gravy at Michelle’s. Mmmmmmm…
Destination #4 was Daylight Donuts – because we’d seen coffee but hadn’t seen any donuts on the ride.
20 miles later the ride returned to the rendezvous.
