Free air and winter bikes 8488_StaatsAfter a “brown” Christmas with many Minnesotans grumbling about the lack of white, we awoke to a 6-inch snow on Saturday morning.  The landscape was once again white and clean.  I was wandering around the St. Paul campus of the University of Minnesota and found these bicycles and “Free Air.”  The snow had piled up precariously on top of the handlebars, tires, and bicycle seats – almost like frosting on a cake.  The colors of the bikes and the chains added a bright contrast to the white and brown scenery all around.  With the forecast of colder temperatures I doubt this snow will be melting anytime soon.
