2.4 °C; Clear Frosty ride this AM. When I got up, the thermometer showed 2 °C and as suspected, the cars parked outside were covered with frost. Finding the Dinkytown Greenway closed was not too big of a surprise because I had seen signs alerting to the closure. I took the RR service road running along the Greenway, finding it soft and muddy after the weekend rains. Could not find anything conclusive about the closures, two possibilities: the removal of the pedestrian suspension bridge crossing it at the southern end and roadwork on East River Rd. I assume it's the bridge removal, which I assume would not take too much time. For the time being, I will need to find an alternate route, non of which are attractive. I will start tomorrow, with my weekly coffee ride to Dunn Bros. At least that one is in plan.

TPC to Home Dinkytown Detour 3:25 PM; Minneapolis
17.9 °C; Partly cloudy Must not have pushed the start button on Garmin hard enough. Bummer, because this was a route I hadn't done before, did it only because of the Dinkytown Greenway closure. My colleague Dan told me about the route in the bike room, wasn't bad at all, only had to stop for one light. But wind drove me into S St. Anthony, where I noticed the missing click. I recreated it on the map and estimated my time.
