First group ride of the Season. The Lakes in the City (Mpls) are still frozen with ice.

We met in the center of the city called Uptown and cruised the parkways around the lakes in Minneapolis. High water blocked us near the Mississippi River. We rode past the road closed barriers until water over the road stopped us. Great authentic Italian lunch near St Paul at Boun Giornos Deli. Good ride in the Sun 58 degrees.

First Minnesota Group Ride
Fledermaus,

You are right sir. Kraig Jones, Werner Kohler, and myself (Bob Copeland)
regularly join your annual Wisconscoot Rallys from Minnesota. I expect you will see the three of us this Season for Wisconscoot 2018.

tdrake,

In Minnesota, December had the coldest temperature in over 100 years.
Combined with a long Winter, Lake Ice up North was over 2 feet thick, in
the South minimum 1 foot thick. It may hit 70-80 degrees this week - the ice will go out soon.
