The bulk of my riding career has so far consisted of commuting and super-slabbing, so I'm not familiar with a lot of interesting out-of the way places. But this thread has given me an excuse to meander down slower, twistier roads...




Baffling, or painfully obvious?

That is correct, but it was only a valid point of reference for about 9&1/2 minutes on Monday. Now, it's nowhere near a yella interceptor nor a yellow & puke-green interceptor. It's near a source of life that will never need painting, nor will speed up or slow down--AFAIK.

Yes, nobody but the local riders will have a clue. Throw a dog a bone...

found

i found it, it sits right down hill from saint thomas. wasn't as scary as finding the pillsbury building since i had to cross the 35w bridge. is it part of the grand rounds? it sits on the saint paul side. maybe your clue was a red herring. i'll look at my photos for the next destination.

This is me catching the pig after pushing it off the side stand while trying to move the trunk from in front of the cross while in gear with one hand (hand pulling clutch) and saluting with the other (hand changing plans) before the timer goes off on the camera:




This is some duche wondering what the hell I am doing lying on the ground behind a camera:




This is what success looks like cool calm and supported by side stands:

that's funny, sure i'll agree you were there first, (it looked to be quite the ordeal). i knew instantly where the st. thomas tag was but nobody seemed to be looking for it, so i went. i'll submit this and also look for your tag.
