WBG Java Jive Soaked Crow Express - July 23, 2016

Temp only averaged 25C because of the cloud cover and then went down to 22C when we were riding back into Minneapolis and got caught in a downpour. We thought we could beat it back but no such luck! Wind was from the SE at 16 KPH and humidity was 70% with a dew point of 20C.

For the WBG Java Jive we had six riders and twelve riders for the WBG Java Crow Express.

Seated left to right are Edward, Tim, Karin, Matt, Chris, Marc, Tracy, Jerry, Bryan, Richard, and Dave. Not pictured are Tim and Jim.

The day started out for me at 06:00 for a pre-ride up on the North Side of Minneapolis along the Mississippi River. I discovered a water falls that was build by the Minnesota Department of Transportation in 1980 on Shingle Creek that I am quite sure is for water control. Picture here and video at this link on my YouTube Channel.
