The Mileage Pie is now sweeter!
23 miles sweeter to be precise and this was the early morning reason!
It was colder in my heated shop than it was outdoors...
A contributing factor to this morning's ride...note the Red indicators....heat is on High.
A fine morning for a toodle....
On the local pond there's ice and the fisher folks have been making holes to find the fishes. No permanent houses yet....but that will come. Lake Pepin isn't ready for ice quite yet.
I rode up into the State Park and found it very quiet.
The parking lot hasn't been this empty since pre-COVID.
Raining across the river in Wisconsin and soon to be raining in Minnesota.
This is the reason that it was so nice this morning....because it's going to be so bad tonight.
Raindrops barely perceptible on my black Darien Light jacket.
Once back at home, I was out in the shop to finally get the Helix put back together. We should be ready for many more trouble-free miles.
And so on...:)
Making a cold winter day just that much more special....
Merry Christmas to all with hopes and prayers for a peaceful, healthy and happy end of 2020.
