A very cold and cloudy day here in the Northland. Seems more like November then the end of September.
We had four riders on the WBG Java Crow Express. Richard went on and did the Excelsior add-on, Marc went out on the Luce Line for some crushed limestone, Austin went on the TCBC Cruzin' The Crow, and Edward came back into town.

The picture is of the Minnetonka Lake LRT Trail which is a great cut-through in Hopkins to avoid two lights and crossing over Route 7. No picture of the group this week as everyone split up early.

A rainy day but we thought we could at least get in the WBG Java Crow Express without getting wet. The WBG Java Jive was cancelled because it was raining at 07:00 but had cleared by 08:30. The forecast was wrong as it was raining when we got to Wayzata. Cruzin' The Crow was cancelled.
Richard, Mark, and Jim went on to Excelsior and Edward went back in with the Greg, Steve, and their group. Unfortunately Edward had some frame damage after going through a bumpy part of the road going back to downtown Minneapolis.
Temperature average of 18C with wind out of the E at 15 KPH. Humidity at 77% and dew-point at 17C.
