30 Days of Biking
30 Days of Biking is a pledge to ride your bike every day in April and share your adventures online with the hashtag #30daysofbiking.
There’s no minimum distance — down a hill and around your garage count just like a 20-mile commute or a 350-mile charity ride.

Note: I rode the Lake Minnetonka Regional Trail yesterday (Monday) and other than a small handful of soft / wet spots the trail was in great shape! Hopefully the threatened rain tonight will not change those conditions.
