This is a 125 mile loop of the Twin Cities, starting in Minneapolis.  No matter how well you know the metroplex, this route will give you a different perspective on the wide variety of roads, trails, parks, lakes and rivers in our metropolitan area.  Highlights include:

  • Five crossings of major rivers (Mississippi, St. Croix, Minnesota) including the beautiful Stillwater Bridge
  • Many county and state parks, including Fort Snelling, Theodore Wirth, Big Rivers, Long Lake, Rice Creek, Elm Creek, Mississippi Levee and the Greenway
  • River Road in Afton
  • Trout Brook Road, just over the Wisconsin border near Hudson
  • A few decent hills and some rollers to get your heart rate up but most of the course is pretty mellow
  • And a couple of special spots that you will really enjoy

The route will be 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.

***Please note the new starting location***

Dunn Brothers on Lake Street has closed down :( So we are trying a new coffee shop just down the road. They seam to 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 ecourage folks to ride to the ride.

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.
