This guy is lucky to be alive. I was traveling the same route as him and a couple blocks before this intersection, he was almost hit by a car as he ran a red light. He skidded, the car skidded and they avoided each other by a small margin. I guess he decided to stop at this light.
Minneapolis recently installed public rental bikes all over the city. Here is one of the racks. I pass six of them on my way to work. Some racks have lots of bikes and others are almost empty. I see a few of them on the trails. I'd like to try one someday. They look really sturdy.
I saw this sign and mural behind a restaurant on Lake Street in Minneapolis. Look at the shrimp who appears happy to sacrifice itself for your dinner and the bizarrely shaped bicycle. It says Nike on the seat.

It rained heavily last night and I found all the broken glass washed from the streets this morning on my late ride into work. This tree was down across the Minneapolis Diagonal Trail.
If you’d like a laugh, take a minute to read the linked article about the drunk 12-year old. It’s one those that should appear in News of the Weird.

This is a Capricorn single speed.
This is my bike rack. I built it from left over lumber and PVC plumbing pipe. The photo would be more helpful if I'd parked a bike in the rack.
A parting thought:
"Don'tmistake my silence for approval of what you're doing."
