Dakota Trail-Farewell Ride For/With Gran Jefe Kevin

Our dear friend and an event host for this group, Kevin G. is giving up the good life in Minnesota and moving to Tennessee. Let's gather and do a Farewell Ride with him and in his honor. The ride will be to St. Boni at a pace of 10-13 mph. The shorter distance and slower pace has been chosen to allow all of the chief's friends to participate. No one will be left behind. After the ride we will go to the Wayzata Bar & Grill for lunch and one last opportunity to reminisce about our times with Kevin. In case of inclement weather the ride will be canceled but still plan on meeting at the restaurant for lunch. If this happens details for lunch only will be posted later.  If you have questions you may send me an email or call me at[masked]-2818.

    I'm really sorry I missed the ride, but was nice being able to join everyone for lunch. Kevin, you will certainly be missed by our bike gang and our Feed My Starving Children group. We wish you all the best in your new ventures...enjoy your Southern family and hurry back to visit your Minnesota family!

    Wonderful ride, Marilynn! Thank you.

    Kevin, Good luck with your future endeavors, and know that your "family" back here will sincerely miss you. If your travels should ever bring you back here again, the "Welcome mat" will always be out for you.

    I will be there in spirit! August 25th is the day after my Gran Fondo (likely will be only a Medio Fondo) and I will be out of town. Mr. George I credit you with introducing me to the great sport of road biking! You were there when I limped along on my old klunker 1995 cross bike on a "Wonro" ride and for the purchase of my first road bike at Tonka Cycle and Ski. Thank you dear friend, for your encouragement these last few years, and your friendship. I wish you happy trails in your future and many miles on your bike. We are all sad to see you go, but go with our blessing and good wishes. You rock!

    Sorry guys, can't make my first meetup :( I got pretty badly burned @ the MN state fair today, and it's going to be very hot on Sunday. I'll be sure to make another one! Good luck to you Kevin.

    Do we need to make reservation at the Wayzata Bar & Grill?

    August 24, 2013

    • Marilynn I

      Hi Paul. I haven't made any reservations. It's a fairly large place and I think on a Sunday we should be ok without them.

      August 24, 2013

  • Rocky (.

    Where will you be having lunch?

    August 24, 2013

  • Susan

    What time will you be having lunch? I can't ride yet but would like to join you for lunch.

    August 24, 2013

    • Marilynn I

      I'm guessing we will be meeting for lunch around 12:45 That is allowing 2.5 hours for actual biking time, 3 breaks at 10 minutes each and time to get to the restaurant.

      August 24, 2013

  • Rocky (.

    Hoping to do this! Kevin????why the heck are you leaving Minnesota?
