Lake Herman Solid for Ice Shacks and Bikes!

Who needs a bike trail to Lake Herman...

...when there's a bike trail on Lake Herman!!!

The ice shacks are out on Lake Herman. I rounded the south shore, then pedaled straight across from the state park to the western shore. No big heaves, no mushy spots... but remember, that was 150 pounds of guy and layers on 30 pounds of bicycle. If you really want to haul your two tons of pickup truck out on ten inches of ice, that's your business.

  1. Gorgeous! Don't think I'll try the kayak just now, though.

  2. Windy day

    P.S. Love them glasses.

  3. Parafoil + snowboard? I want a really wide lake for that experiment! Most days, that sounds like the fastest way to end up in Iowa. 8-)

  4. Are you sure it is strong enough in the middle? I sure hope so. It's a mom thing!

    Great pictures!


  5. I make no guarantees... but I did make across without making a splash.
