A Ride On The East Side
I took off from the house after work and rode east on Summit, through the Capitol area and east on Phalen Blvd. You can always tell you're on the east side of Saint Paul when you ride on the streets. They are rarely swept and glass and junk litters the side of the road. Nice bike lane... Mayor Chris Coleman knows where to spend the street maintenance money... Highland, Mac-Groveland, Merriam Park, Crocus Hill, Summit Ave. The north end and west side are treated like the east side... Anyway, I rode back via Phalen Golf Course where I came across Bill Stuber riding home. We talked for a while. I noticed my rear wheel was soft so I took out the CO2 inflator and gave the tire some air. The total miles were a little more than 16.
