Friday I rode a great gravel route similar to what Trevor and I normally ride in the spring- out past stagecoach, through the valley, down to Chatfield, up to Dover and then back into Rochester. Felt really good to get out on the gravel bike.
Yesterday, I left town along with the nonessential. We took a nice route up to Cannon Falls. I wouldn't leave there until it was almost dark which left me with an interesting leg down to Red Wing in the dark! Today I took the Wisconsin side down to the crossing at Wabasha then rode a series of 'cat 4' climbs in the hilliest part of where the Ragnarok goes (basically rode mile 45-65 of that course backwards- the section with the river bottoms and the two or three largest climbs), then dropped by Spring Creek for some moto on my way to Millville and then onto the gravel back way home from there.
I got a new cell phone last week too- cell phone pictures...

Next weekend I race in that crit in Des Moines... Then the following it's either the Ore to Shore or another trip like this (possibly on a mountain bike in northern wisconsin).
