Bike along the Missouri River Nature Trail and Missouri River Mountain Bike Trail in Mandan - we had this planned June 10, but rescheduled because of rain. This is a nice route that winds through trees along the Missouri, hope you can join us.
We'll have a little street riding first, then a dirt/grass/sand trail. It is fairly flat and is not technical, so a variety of bikes would work if you have decent tires (some sandy areas). We'll start at the south end (we've start at the north in the past) because people could easily ride to that point from other Bismarck-Mandan recreational trails, http://mandanparks.com/wp-content/uploads/2014-Trail-Map.pdf.
Meet near the intersection of Marina Road Southeast and Pirates Loop Southeast on the south side of the Memorial Bridge in Mandan (Robert M. Longfellow Veterans Memorial Park on the Mandan Parks map).
If you are driving to the starting point, it's a bit convoluted, you can see the spot from the Veterans' Memorial Bridge (Main Street Bridge), but you have to drive south a bit and come back north to actually get there.
Here are directions from the intersection of State Street (Highway 83) and I-94 in Bismarck, taking the I-94 bridge, http://goo.gl/maps/XXRkD
