|We have made it to the Mississippi River!|
Most of this, we did on a series of bike trails and routes that wind over and through the entire city. They have really put the infrastructure in for cycling, and this in a city where one might claim, "but we can only ride half the year!"

We arrived at my niece Janet's home in the "50th and France" neighborhood of Minneapolis. Keith had prepared a wonderful pot roast, and we ended the day catching up with the Tour de France. A day to plan our attack on Wisconsin is next, then we will head east toward the ferry and Michigan.
