My new blog: Mountain Bike Geezer

Mountain Bike Geezer
Rather than continuing to annoy those of you here on LoGro who have no interest in my recreational life, I’ve created a new blog: Mountain Bike Geezer. From the About page:

This blog site is not only about my mountain bike adventures, but also about the sport of mountain biking, especially here in Minnesota: issues, organizations, people, legislation, funding, etc. And since I also use a bike for around-town errands, paved trail riding with family and friends, and the occasional commute, I may occasionally blog about non-mountain bike bicycling.

You can also follow my new Twitter account that accompanies the blog: @MtnBikeGeezer.

    Funny to stumble across the post about your gravel road ride to Murphy. I was riding in there with you guys that day. I remember how when you guys said you had ridden up from Northfield I decided to tell you how you could bail out of the expert loop early. I felt bad about having said that because surely you would not want to cut short such an epic voyage!

    I live on the edge of Murphy. Would you kindly share the route you took, as I might want to make the reverse trip? Thanks and regards, Todd

    Hey Todd, no worries. We rode the full expert loop and had a blast.

    As for the route, I’ll see if our fearless leader Jerry Bilek has the details, as I was a follower. He used MapMyRide to plan the trip, and we pretty much followed his plan on the way up. The return trip was pretty much ad hoc!

      Thanks Griff. Actually I did get an account. It’s good to look at some back roads. I love living over here by Murphy because I really don’t have to ride with traffic. But I do need a little excitement every once in a while. So a ride to Northfield certainly fits the bill. ~Todd

    Griff-I made Todd a friend so he could view the route.

    Todd-the gravel roads south of Northfield are beautiful. great riding with little traffic. farmer trail, valley grove, caron park. all are gorgeous places to ride.
