You've just experienced the best biking weather of the summer! The first week of July offered dry skies and low humidity. Perfect for all Minnesota bikers. This has been one of the better starts to July, very different from the previous wet June and spring.
Thunderstorms on Tuesday will be followed by sunshine the rest of this week. Drier, cooler Canadian air sneaks in by midweek allowing for ideal riding conditions Wednesday-Friday. Chance of rain ticks back up again this weekend as a front stalls over the state.
Tuesday: T-storms w/strong winds, especially before Noon. H: 89 Wind: SE 5-10
Tuesday Night: Rain ends, sky clears. L: 64 Wind: NNW 7
Wednesday: Clear sky, low humidity. H: 81 L: 62 Wind: NW 5-10

Maah Daah Hey
I'm taking my bike and I'm heading to the rugged badlands and rolling prairies of western North Dakota, a 96-mile long biking trail known as the Maah Daah Hey trail. I plan on tackling this trip towards the end of summer when the summer sun starts to wane and the insects begin to fade away. After spending this past weekend camping in the Boundary Waters, I think I'm ready for a self-supporting ride through the grasslands of North Dakota. Have you done this ride before? Any tips, suggestions, advice??
