Bike Ride: Crosby Farm Regional Park, Sam Morgan Regional Trail, Shepherd Road

Couple weeks ago, Mel and I wanted to go on a bike ride. We realized that while we’ve ridden the trails in Minneapolis dozens of times, we’d never gotten around to riding the trails just over the river in St. Paul. So we called some friends, Randy & Chrissy, and headed out for St. Paul:

First, we got as far as Crosby Farm Regional Park along the Sam Morgan Regional Trail before I had a mechanical problem with my bike and had to turn around. R+C kept going without us. A few days later, Mel and I picked up where we left off and finished the ride into downtown St. Paul. The trail follows Shepard Road. There’s also another off-shoot trail that follows Randolph Avenue by the river for a while. This part of the trails is really neat. Bunch of new condos, and even a couple historical markers and stuff.

Here’s Mel checking out some old piece of equipment:

    Hey Ruben,

    I just found your pics of the Sam Morgan Trail in the post above, and I just shared one of them – the second-to-last one, showing the trail and the condos on the left, as you go into downtown St. Paul – on Facebook, just to illustrate a point about the improved development along the riverfront. I hope this is okay with you. If not, I’ll remove it.
