Bike Ride: Sakatah Singing Hills

Went for a bike ride today with Jay & Mikko to the Sakatah Singing Hills trail down between Faribault & Mankato. It was quite windy and the trail was just so-so. We biked from near Faribault to the town of Elysian and back with little side jaunts to check out Elysian and Waterville, about 40 miles round trip. The trail wasn't in the greatest shape and reminded me of the Douglas Trail near Rochester that I rode last year -- lots of seams and bumps and just looked like it had been there for a long time. It was mostly flat and straight and through farm country, which I like. We rode by some lakes, too, but they were pretty unimpressive.

Afterwards we stopped at Grundy's in Northfield for lunch. We each had the double hamburger, which was terrific, but the French fries weren't too good. Always fun to get back to Northfield, though.

Trail Rating: 5 out of 10
