It was a busy weekend for Minnesotans. Many folks were focused on the Vikings vs Green Bay football game. Others were focused on the Homie Fall Fest followed by a day of recovery on Sunday. But, for about 30 of us we were focused on a fall gravel road ride in the country.
It was a beautiful fall day here in Minnesota. Some might say it was the perfect day. I agree, it was perfect. About 30 of us gathered for the Rawland Gravel Tour. It started just southeast of Northfield where Sean and Ben live. I rode my trusty Fargo loaded up with food, water, my camera stuff and a bunch of stuff in my frame bag. To say the day was one of my best days on a bike is an understatement. It was sunny. It was cool. It was warm. It rained. We saw a rainbow. We laughed. We ate. It was pure joy.
So, I leave you with a few pictures. Hope you enjoy!
Thanks Sean and Ben. Ride & Smile!

Growing up as a Minnesota farm boy, I developed an appreciation and love for land and open space. This appreciation has fostered two passions, cycling and photography. Both of these passions provide freedom, encourage me to explore and foster creativity. More importantly though, my journey with a bike and a camera reminds me that the world is big and I am small.
