The surprises I’ve come to expect while cycling: city, burbs, forest, & dunes

The range of sights has surprised me. I expected to enjoy some city sights, but there was also a lot more suburbs than I expected, or maybe exurbs. I tend to like cycling through an old city or woods. Fortunately plenty of that has shown up too, like Sand Dunes State Forest.


Downtown Minneapolis by the Mississippi, one of my favorites

I talked with a couple guys fishing in a park, just north of downtown Mnpls

These days, a picnic in a park includes a microwave, ugh

Exurbs, tiring to cycle through

It was fun, challenging, & a surprise to get back on gravel

I stumbled into a great campground that I want to get back to.
