Ride from home to meet Julie, Annie, and Joe at the May Day parade. Decided to cross the river at Nicols Rd; Black Dog Lake is still so high there was >2 ft of water over the road with a gentle west-to-east current. Made it through without getting tipped over! OK once I got to the actual Hwy 77 bridge and the pedestrian bridge.

Ride home from May Day, partway with Annie. Went down to Minnehaha and took the Mendota Bridge to cross the river.
Biked Ford Pkwy - Hwy 5 loop with Julie, including down at Hidden Falls and some of the turf trails on the W side of the river.

Drove down to Spring Lake W trailhead to check out the new paved trail along the Mississippi. Went east as far as Isadore Av and turned around because of the oncoming thunderstorms - back in the car by the time it started raining. Dakota Co has done a nice job.
