Lung Cookie Festival

I was sick last week and didn't ride. For some reason, blogging and riding go together for me. That's why I didn't blog last week. The antibiotics are working and I rode to work today. It was a festival of expectorant. You could probably track me from my house to work if you followed the trail of lung cookies and boogers. I think it's part of the healing process.

I brought a camera and decided to take dark time photos of the Midtown Greenway Bridge (over Hiawatha Avenue in Minneapolis). I took some daylight photos two weeks ago and I've posted those too. To top it all off, I took a video while riding over the bridge. All you people from out of town can see what it's like to ride over a $5,000,000 bicycle/pedestrian bridge. I'm not knocking the price of the bridge. In the big scheme of road construction, that's probably a small project.

I like blurry night photos.

That's not the moon.

Here's the video. As Leonard Pinth-Garnell would say, "Perfectly awful!"

Gosh! I think it's fantastic that a community would even think of spending that much money on bike/pedestrian bridge. Wouldn't happen here in Virginia, I can tell you that! Heck, we can even get people to agree on footing (no pun intended!) the cost to maintain the roads we have for cars.

This was fun. I am a sucker for commuting photos and video. Now that we have heard you dialect there is one question that needs to be answered.

Are you a cop in Fargo? 8>)

revrunner: Yes, I'm thankful for the work others before me have done to promote bicycling in this area.

Pete: Sorry.

Lunatic: It was a nice coincidence.

Jasckrabbit: Only greenies.

Midnight: I'm like an aural chameleon. I sound like where ever I live.
