Seven of us completed Terrace Oaks, Lebanon Hills, A chunk of the river bottoms, Salem Hills, Carver Lake and Battle Creek. After battle Creek we headed to St Paul were I had my van and enclosed trailer staged so we didn't have to ride the 17-18 miles of road back to my house. At least half of the day we experienced pissing rain, not the kind that saturates the ground but keeps you nice and cool. The dampness also aids in keeping a steady supply of loose, sandy soil sticking to the drive-train.
It was a great ride with good company, topped off with cheap hamburgers and hot dogs at my house.
