I like the changes from last summer's route! Nine-mile trail was passable (about a tire-width of dry pavement) but thanks for having the alternative route!

04-21-2021 - Pho Scramble - SOLO Ride

StephanHxxxxx

The "right turn on Stevens" at 11.3 got me! Of course, I kept going on Stevens and ended up on the wrong side for a while. Unfortunate result of the Garmin Edge 1030

Nice urban loop. A little busy by Lake Harriet in the afternoon.

04-18-2021 - SOLO Ride -Little Canada and Rice Creek Trails

StephanHxxxxx

Thanks for the route. Wish there was another option of around 28-30 miles, but overall happy. I'm really really really bummed that they are dropping SOLO rides, since it's just narrowing the appear of a bike club, especially since many of the members won't be vaccinated yet either.

It was a beautiful day for a ride. The only issue was 3-4 inches of water on the Nine Mile Creek Trail at mile 27.5

04-18-2021 - SOLO Ride -Little Canada and Rice Creek Trails

JohnnyPxxx

It cold and windy with a few flurries. No issues to report. 

04-18-2021 - SOLO Ride - Bloomington Bluffs

EdwardExxx

One of my favorite TCBC Self-Directed Rides! Sad that we will not have these anymore. We must find a way to bring them back. Oh, there is gravel on the road that goes down to the Minnesota River by Cedar Drive. I was not sure why it was there and only seemed to be intermittently on the right side of the lane. It looks like it was put there on purpose.

The Mississippi River is rising to flood stage and will soon inundate the old Mississippi River Gorge Trail. The flood detour it to ride on East River Parkway.

I meant to do a longer ride, but after Ayd Mill I wasn't feeling very well because of vaccine and cut across to river road to complete. Thank you Johnny!

04-11-2021 - SOLO Ride - Bloomington Bluffs

JohnnyPxxx

The only issue is a little water on the Nine Mile Creek trail below the school. It's only about 1 inch deep and wasn't a problem to ride through.

04-11-2021 - Solo-Bald Eagle Beauty

JohnnyPxxx

It was cool and wet, but I had a great ride. Thanks Mary!

04-11-2021 - Fall Warmer 23 - Solo

SusanExxx

Pete. Could you make a couple of changes on the cue sheet. When we turn on to the Marshal Ave bridge we should get rid of the left hand turn to the river road. Instead we should take a right at the end of the bridge the a right on to the river road


the other correction should be after we cross the bridge by the Veterans Home, it should be take a left onto Minnehaha Dr then cross Hwy 55 to 54th st

Believe it or not, I did the ride between 5:00 & 7:00 PM. tonight (Tues.) When I started, the roads were basically dry. but it started to snow in my face on Woodhill. But when I turned south on Hamline, it was a crosswind and didn't bother me.

Ride mileage really should be 31, but nice route...

04-04-2021 - SOLO Ride - Bloomington Bluffs

It was a beautiful April day, with light winds and 79 degrees with sunny skies. The only issue to report is about 2 inches of water on the Nine Mile Creek Trail at mile 27.5 on the 51- and 58-mile routes.

Great route, perfect day. Thanks! There's some utility work or something going on on Excelsior just before the finish - no problem, but single lanes, no shoulders, etc.

Nasty wind coming back this afternoon but we survived. Missing one cue to turn left on Harriet at about mile 17? But since we had done the 43 we kind of remembered. Thanks again Johnny.


04-04-2021 - SOLO Ride - Bloomington Bluffs

EdwardExxx

I like the changes you made going down the Minnesota Greeway Trail and going further on the Nine Mile Trail. I do miss the Old Cedar Bridge but not the other bridge to get there! Thanks for adding on the long-distance route as it goes right by where I live in the North Loop and with a few more kilometers can get in a metric century!

04-04-2021 - In & Out of St Louis Park - 25 - solo

It was a really enjoyable day for a ride, even with the few sprinkles. This route is so much fun to ride. Thanks Pete!

NancyRxxxx

Fabulous route! Birdlife in all the wooded areas was astonishing. Good news was I had my binoculars along. Accordingly, my pace as a result was nothing to write home about. It's hard to do a bird 'n' bike and be highly effective at both. Nevertheless, pure delight along the way culminating in an Eagle Show of at least half a dozen on the wing on doing aerial performances over the river - soaring, dropping, hunting - and one parent on a nest. Thank you!

Nice route with no issues to report. Thanks Linda!

03-28-2021 - SOLO Ride - Bloomington Bluffs

The only issue is Blake Road is closed to through traffic at Vernon Ave, but it’s open to local traffic. I consider bikes “local traffic” so it shouldn’t be a problem.

03-28-2021 - SOLO Ride - Bloomington Bluffs

Nice route; super windy today. Fortunately it was at my back on the way home.

Mike, I cut off at Medicine Lake to go back downtown, so I only counted from the start to where I turned off the route. 19 miles for the route and 35 miles for my total for my ride to the start and where I cut off. My Ride with GPS Link: https://ridewithgps.com/trips/64820275?privacy_code=XeJDzwHXDslMsd5I Nice route as I went to some places I have not been before. Thanks!

Nice route. I missed the turn from the Gateway Trail to Heath, but just turned south on Hadley. Gave me about 0.7 extra miles. Nice day. Wind was a bit stronger than expected, but it was a tailwind most of the way back.
