Hiawatha Cyclery Ride, July 12, 2008

The Hiawatha Cyclery ride meandered East to the St. Paul Farmer's Market. I've been to a couple markets in this area, but this is now my favorite.

But before I reached the HC World Headquarters, I had to cross the LifeTime Fitness triathlon route. It's a major event, with the winners of each gender class being awarded $60,000. That's right, $60,000! If you click on the photo, you can see their green swimming caps.
Here some of the triathletes passing beautiful Longfellow gardens, but they may not have noticed.
I arrived and lots of people were showing up for the HC ride.

On the way to St. Paul, we stopped for a break at the little blue buildling.

This bridge going into downtown St. Paul is longer than I remembered.

The St. Paul Farmer's Market is located in downtown. It was a beautiful day.

Here are the beets I bought. Have you ever seen maroon pee?

Maroon pee

I don't believe that article about beeturia. It says 10-14% of the population have maroon pee after eating beets. Clearly, 86-90% of the population isn't getting enough beets, because every beet eater I know reports peeing in a maroon hue.
