30 Days of Biking

We're joining the 30 Days of Biking challenge for April 2011 and plan to post a daily update on the rides -- mostly utility cycling and bike commuting in the Minneapolis area.  For the whole month's posts, start here and click on the "next post" icon.

The first day of the month threatened sleet and snow, but most of it passed through before the morning commute, leaving just a cold drizzle and mostly clear pavement. It looked like a good month for Rainshield gear; it keeps us dry, but breathes well enough that sweat doesn't build up inside.
