Ride on the Duluth Lakewalk
Weather.com was showing some showers heading through the area late morning. So, I killed some time chatting online. Soon, the clouds were getting thinner, so kitted up for low/mid 40 deg weather.
It was a little over a block from my hotel (Days Inn Duluth) to the Edgewater entrance of the Duluth Lakewalk. Took the hybrid off the car rack and loaded up for the ride. It was a 3 mile ride along Lake Superior to Canal Park. Rode around Canal Park before riding back to the hotel.
Was a bit brisk ride back as I had a stiff headwind. While I was a little chilly, I was not uncomfortable. Guess I had just the right layer of clothes. Felt great to be back on the bike. Was not sure I was excited about riding in this weather, but sure glad I did. Just over 7 mile ride.
OH, I had the GoPro on the bike. Still have problems understanding when the camera is running and when its not. Did not get the footage I thought I was getting.
Was thinking of getting out last night - sampling the local night life. But the exercise and fresh air made me too tired. Instead, I feasted on a chicken fried steak at Perkins (2 blocks from the hotel) and called it a night.
