Spring time is really, really, close. There are a few ways to tell: first, the temperature is rising, with the potential for 50 degrees next week, many ‘fair weather’ cycling commuters will begin to emerge. Second the crew at 30 Days of Biking has produced their Minnesotans Spring Indicator. Last, and certainly not least, Minnesota’s Biking bloggers have sprung into action with a flurry of posts this week. We thought that as a nod to our favorite (check everyday) blogs, we would post the best of the week from them, just incase you missed it (click on the title to follow to the post).
