On Sunday, as part of my "training" as I work towards my goals of a multi day camping trip and hopefully participating in this years Heck of the North, I went on my longest ride of the year so far. I left my house at 7a.m. and headed downhill toward Lake Superior. The temp was in the low 40's with a 20 mph wind off the lake.
Going down Seven Bridges road was one of the highlights of my ride. It's freshly paved, has many nice river crossings, and no pedaling is required.
I didn't stop to take many pictures of the lake. The wind was so strong, It was hard to get going again. I was only able to average 11 mph on relatively flat ground.
I love seeing the lake, but this scenery is nice too.
It's been a good year for seeing horses. Or at least I'm just stopping to take more pictures than I have in the past.
This immature bald eagle seems to be enjoying the windy day.
I'm getting close to home. This is another of my favorite regular stops.
