I've got a review for you of the best bike trail you haven't ridden. It's in Edina, pretty short, and it's been around since I was a kid. It goes clean through a pond, and has great views. In the years hence, connecting streets have gained bike lanes. To the north, there's a small business node, with a bike shop, malt shop, etc., and to the south, over a pedestrian bridge, (with a gutter for bike wheels on the stairs) is the public water park.

day 16: sun's out, fun's out! It's even trolley season!

day 13: rode up to Victory Memorial Parkway on the occasion of Pokemon Go Community Day, and walked around with some friends. Most of the trails have been cleared of snow and are good as new.

day 12: took a break from taxes to do a zoop around the neighborhood
