a perfect day for a bike ride

The last two days the weather has been absolutely perfect. Perfect summer weather with warm temperatures but lower humidity! Love it!

Drew and I decided to take advantage of the gorgeous weather and loaded our bikes up and went out to explore a new (to us) bike trail. We started in the downtown area of Wayzata right near Lake Minnetonka. I haven’t been out to this area in years and I totally forgot how much I love this town with all the great little shops, restaurants and a great waterfront area. But today we were not there for shopping, we were there for biking. :)


So, we jumped on the trail and headed out. The Dakota Rail Regional Trail goes for 12 miles west from where we started in Wayzata, along Lake Minnetonka, through this cities of Orono, Minnetonka Beach, Spring Park, Minnetrista, and St. Bonifacius.



This was a great trail that was very flat and had quite a bit of shade, which was nice because the temp did get up to 91 degrees while we were out there.



We passed some gorgeous homes and rode right through the Lafayette Club.



The scenery kept changing and I could have taken a bazillion pictures! Beautiful!


I loved the words on this sign.


It was a great morning of biking with great company!


And soon enough we were back to where we started.


Drew and I were both famished at this point and decided to stop for lunch in downtown Wayzata. Drew chose Punch Pizza as the spot for us to cool off and refuel. Perfect choice!


It was a perfect day for a bike ride! :)
