Houston County....

Little Timmy and I got a chance to bust loose for the day. (I promised the Fair Marie that my weekend would be divided thus: one day for riding and the other for projects around the estate.) Nothing against Wisconsin roads, but we ride the ABCs a lot. It's been a while since I've had the opportunity to ride down to Winona and Houston counties, and today was the day. All in all, you can string along a pretty decent route on the Minnesota side of the river. Sure, there may be a few stretches of pavement that are straight for 20-miles, but there is no shortage of twisty roads. I still contend that Houston Co. Roads 4 and 10 are two of the best in the region. Not a lot of traffic; decent pavement. (There is about a half-mile stint of gravel on Co. 10 that crosses a bridge, but it's been like that for years for some reason or another.) And Hwy 76 between Houston and Caledonia, is one of the most kinked-up stretches of road out there. (Too bad we had a LEO in front of us.) We racked up about 300 miles, and still managed to miss other county highways that I recall being good to ride. Sounds like another ride down there will soon be in order.
