This route is essecially a shorter version of our classic 200k City Slickers and will give you the flavor of the cities in a smaller package. The route is on a combination of roads and trails in mostly urban areas. This is not a course for hammerheads; take your time, enjoy some new parts of the Twin Cities and have a fun day.
***Flood Updates for our 2023 City Slickers Edition ***
Every few years, we have substantial spring flooding that then affect the April or May editions of the City Slickers ride. The posted gps link for the Mini City Slickers is a modified vesion that has 2 major re-routes due to expected flooding:
***Please note the new starting location***
Dunn Brothers on Lake Street has closed down and therefore we have moved the start location last year to Fireroast Coffee and Wine, a new coffee shop just down the road. They have a nice selection of food and drinks to get us going in the morning and to celebrate upon finishing. There is also the Howe, a bar and restaurant, just up the street, so if folks want someting more substantial that is also an option. There is street parking in the residential streets near by, but as always, we encourage folks to ride to the ride.
