Here are some pics from our day ride yesterday (2/18/07) riding on the Hennepin canal in central Illinois. Riding conditions on the canal were awesome! A few slushy spots on the ice but for the most part plenty of ice and good snow conditions. Trails on the banks were thin and gravely in a lot of places so we pretty much stuck to the canal. Lots of people out riding as well. We had a pretty good time and put on about 130 miles for the day! Here's the pics!

10HP limit EH? Don't see that happening!

One good looking dead Poo! She gave up the ghost 64 miles into the day! Think we may have scored a piston on this one! Had to load her up by hand!

A little! It's all been in the last two weeks! Managed one trip to the U.P. for a long weekend the first weekend of Feb. and then last Sunday's little day trip over to central Illinois on the Hennepin canal. Between the two got about 715 miles of saddle time in!
