Day 15 of Loving MN Winter

By : Carolyn · February 15, 2017

I #LoveMNWinter. Today, I love surprise nice weather!

By Colleen Detloff

Biking in the winter is an awesome, exhilarating, sometimes unpredictable experience. This is my first winter back in the Midwest after spending the last few years out in California — and I wasn’t sure quite what to expect. I had heard of the magic of riding through fresh powdery snow, and was excited to experience it for myself. I was hoping to write a long post about winter bike magic after being inspired by a snowy ride, but as I look out my window, I don’t think it will happen tonight. So instead I’ll just post a few of my favorite pics of the past few months and go enjoy this balmy spring weather. Happy (bike) trails!

Thrilled it's light enough to take a joy ride after my commute home!
