I finished the ride

Dr. Wingnut successfully completed the MS 150 tour of Minnesota from Duluth to the Twin Cities.  Here are the statistics:

Day 1 – Proctor to Hinckley

Distance74.6 Miles
Maximum Speed33.5 MPH
Saddle Time5:17:42
Average Speed14.1 MPH

Day 2 – Hinckley to White Bear Lake

Distance85.8 Miles
Maximum Speed27 MPH
Saddle Time6:41:38
Average Speed12.8 MPH

The first day’s riding was really easy and fast because there was a tail wind the entire day.  The weather was perfect for riding.  The second day was a little on the chilly side until Noon, but the rain held off and it wasn’t ever too warm.

This is the second year that I have ridden, it is really fun, and it is really well organized, so even if you’re not in the greatest of shape, you can at least start, even if you can’t finish.  I’ll post some pictures later so you can see examples of the beautiful scenery you encounter on this tour.
