Right this minute I've been riding 3x a week back and forth to my evening job -- at Aldersgate Church in SLP (near the LA Fitness there). On weekends sometimes DH and I ride on the bike trail towards Minnetonka and Excelsior. If you ride from our house to the frozen custard place by the marina and back, it's about 19 miles. We've only stopped for custard ONCE, I promise! :)
When do you go to the Hopkins LAF? If I go, I usually go in late afternoon or evening.
Did you see the post I put with the maps of the trails around here? My favorite ride is to go down to Big Willow park, just past Hopkins XRD and Mtka blvd, go through over Cedar Lake road, down to Hilloway, which spits you out on 61 near Sherwood Forest, where you can pick up another park (I forget the name -- we just call it the one with the reeds -- you can see it from 61), through that and back to Mtka, where you come out by the Burwell House, and back home. :) Sometimes we do it the other way around, but I like the chain of parks. :)
