Yesterday was the 24th annual MN Swan Ride and my brother was among the first to arrive on a very chilly morning. We were still getting rain down in Red Wing at that time and I was still debating whether or not I'd suit up for the event.
This the planned Route, 140+ miles to arrive at The Cove in Buffalo City. Using even the shortest way home, most participants were looking at 230+ mile day; my brother managed 278.

Fury Motors sponsors a free breakfast and a gathering place for the ride's send-off.
Arriving quite early, the church service was still in progress, cars parked in and around this big corner.
I was ready...with lots of time to spare.
Lunchtime at The Cove in Buffalo City, the Mississippi 15 feet from where I'm standing.
It was just the right kind of day for dessert.....
Rum Cherry to be exact....
So while the real riders did well more than 200 miles, my piddly ride was 109.
The pie chart is getting sliced, optimistically, a few more adjustments yet this riding season.
