So many trails to explore and so little time. I love the giant cotton wood trees by the river. I hope none were killed to make these paths and walkways.
We take biking very seriously here in the Twin Cities. People ride their bikes to work in the snow. I miss biking this time of year. I will sometimes ride when it is cold out but I won’t ride in the snow.
From my recent bike ride along the Cannon on the Cannon Valley trail. This was taken a couple of miles south of Welch village Minnesota.
I have been wanting to check out the Cannon Valley bike trail so on Sunday that is what I did. I took the trail from Cannon Falls to Redwing. The twenty mile trek Â is an easy one because the trail is fairly flat and paved all the way. Much of the trail is along the Cannon river. Some of it is in the woods and some goes through farm land. There is a nice rest area along the trail in Welch Village which is in the picture on the bottom left and where I got my wheel pass. The photos were all taken with my phone and processed using a variety of apps.
I took a lot of pictures of this bike race last June in downtown St. Paul which is a gorgeous place for a race of any kind. I think one thing I am learning this summer is that a wide angle lens can be used to capture a sporting event . . .well at least a bike race.
Another picture from the Nature Valley bicycle festival in downtown St. Paul last week. I had to shoot into the sun but I really wanted the church steeples in the shot and Mickey’s dinner in the background. We do have a pretty downtown area.
