A Twin Cities call for 30 days of biking has gone global.
I live in Las Vegas and we have a chance for snow on our West side tomorrow. No April Fools joke. It just goes to show that God does have a sense of humor.
Here in St Paul it's going to be 78 tomorrow but incredibly, they're predicting snow on the SSW corner of Falcon Heights. No more than 3 inches, though, and it will melt fast. But you probably don't want to bike through that area. People say that area of town reminds them of the west side of Las Vegas.
Why are Star Tribune stories becoming more like something I once read in my high-school newspaper?
ST asks why they are doing this. Minneapolis is the #2 biking city in the country, and probably the #1 winter biking city. And he asks why.
I remember the bike paths in this city and how nice it is to use them to get around. What a great thing!
I think this is a great idea. i bike almost year round as part of my commute :)
what's next, 365 days of biking??
Please come to the mountains of Colorado where winter is a possibility year round. I've even seen it snow here until May, again in July and August, only to get a killing frost in September and our first good snow in October. As for me, we are expecting snow/freezing rain today. I'll join in but it will have to wait until May.
We're actually #1 now, as ranked by Bicycling magazine.
Keep it up guys, you certainly did inspire us!
Your challenge prompted me and my wife to start riding. She rides ~7 miles roundtrip to work every day. I'm looking at riding from Elk River to Waconia for work (45 miles one way) once a week, as soon as my health gets better.
