A Heavenly Little Ride

At the last minute yesterday, I decided to tackle the Tour of Saints 50 mile route this morning and use it as a training ride.  The month of July pulled through again with another hot, humid, and sunny day!  The ride was beautiful and highlighted the rolling countryside of central Minnesota...St. Joseph, Cold Spring, Collegeville, St. Johns University, and Avon.


The hills were great for training and my Garmin calculated I climbed over 2000 feet.  It was also great to get some much needed time on the aero bars and seat on my tri bike.

I have done the Tour of Saints three years now and am thankful that each time the hills become easier.
