A Day with "Gramps" along the Mississippi

Post by bigjohnsd »

"Gramps" told me to give him a shout the next time I was in the Twin Cities with my bike.

Today Gramps took me on a little tour of the Mississippi Valley.

Couldn't ask for a nicer day. We rode about 260 miles with one stop for lunch.

Probably the last ride of the season. Glad you could make it John.

Hey Gramps, when you headed down to SC??

We can ride October, November, December....
...of course the roads suck, but it would still be fun to see you!
