Biking in Winona

I've been in Winona since late Monday. I've been "working" in Rushford every evening, but have spent some days in the old hometown. I brought my bike with me -- I should say my "old bike" though I haven't gotten a new one yet. I ordered one, and it should even now be sitting at the bike shop in Fairmont, but it will probably be Monday before I've got a chance to get in there and get it. So I got my "old bike" fixed at the bike shop here in Winona (I'd broken yet another spoke in the back wheel), and had it out today for the first time. I rode from my parents' house (where I'm staying) down to the lake, and once around; probably an eight-mile total trip, which is about what I'd been riding in Fairmont the last couple of weeks -- for some reason I haven't worked my way up to my usual 10- to 12-mile daily ride yet. It was enjoyable and nostalgic to ride around Lake Winona again (and I'm hoping to do so on a pretty regular basis while I'm here this summer). It's a nice scenic route, and I was re-introduced to the numerous swarms of gnats and other insects that congregate about face height above the path.

Summers in college I'd bike the lake bike trail in the evenings. It was great.

At first I thought the title of this post was "bikini in Winona," and I was excited.
