Even though, I still need my ear muffs and a jacket, we are biking again. Minnesota has some of the best bike trails in the U. S, and we make good use of them. We can talk and collect wild herbs and flowers along the trails. Last fall, before the winter snowed us in, we found a huge patch of wild Bittersweet. Since I always carry clippers, some of it came home with us.
We look for fairly level, paved trails. Our bike is heavy and with our added weight, gravel trails and hills do not work well for us. Fortunately, there is a wonderful trail very close to out house. We have learned to ride early in the morning before we start on all the farm chores and projects. Maybe this summer, we can go to a National park, camp out and ride our bike. We do not work all the time! Just saying —
