First successful bicycle ride since the 12/11 blizzard
Down to the lake, around the lake, back up to Bryant, north on Bryant to the Midtown Greenway, east on the Greenway to the Hiawatha LR Trail, north to downtown, through downtown and Loring Park back to Bryant, and south down Bryant back home.

The ride around Lake Harriet was frustrating because the trail was packed with pedestrians, but I wanted to start out riding close to home in case I had any problems with my bicycle so I just dealt with it.

Only wipeout was on the Hiawatha LR Trail where there was a very large puddle of water covering a large slab of very slippery ice. No harm done except my shoes and socks became sopping wet. Got a "Nice recovery!" from a rider going the other way.

I was just contemplating a short ride today, but had decided it was still too wet + messy. Maybe I will try...

I'm glad you recovered well. I fell + broke my pinky biking when it looked all melted - but there were still ice patches - so please be careful.
