A Rodent on the Marsupial

Took my Rat Ride for a cruise the other day and rode the Marsupial bridge. Seemed a good spot for a photo and a little mammal on mammal action.

Yep, we do build some great bikes but I often like to ride bikes from other manufacturers simply because they are awesome. The Surly Rat Ride is one.

The Rat rules the day!

I Took My Surly 1X1 Rat Ride Out For a Spin Today

It was 50 degrees at 3PM today, on December 1st in Milwaukee no less, and a bike ride was calling. Normally, I ride bikes we build but, on occasion, I like to ride other bikes I own like my old Bontraeger or, as was the case today, my Surly Rat Ride. The day was beautiful and my ride took me down the Oak Leaf Trail for a bit, over to the lake and down past Summerfest before heading back to the shop. About 14.5 miles in all just cruising on the singlespeed. Sweet!
