Wednesday Night Ride

The start time will be at 6:30 until the days get shorter, so hopefully more can make it! We will meet at the parking lot of the Big Rivers Regional Trail - West Trailhead: Overlook parking entrance is off Sibley Memorial Highway just northwest of the intersection of Highway 13 and Mendota Heights Road in Mendota Heights, MN (a link to a map is below). There is free, limited parking available at the stone overlook - leave time for parking in case the lot is full. Helmets are required - please bring and wear your helmet.
This ride will evolve as the season progresses. Bring your sense of humor and adventure. We will start at 6:30pm and ride for approximately 75 minutes each week. This ride will be a RED (14 MPH) ride and a BLUE /BLACK group (that go as fast as they dare). Afterward, we can have some social time with a beverage and/or a bite at Lucky's 13 one of our group sponsors.

The Legal Eagles in the group have come up with a WAIVER

that everyone needs to sign before you can ride with us in 2013. If you have previously signed a waiver, you are good to go. You can print one out via this handy-dandy link, or someone will have a fist full of copies at the first few rides.

We will have a few different routes so the we will have some variation over the season. If you've got some suggestions or ideas, let us know!
All routes follow the same basic path -

Mendota across the Mendota Bridge

Into Fort Snelling

Through Minnehaha  (Option to cross at the Ford Bridge - 15 miles)

Up West river road to Lake Street (Option to cross lake street - 19 miles)

Up West River Road to Franklin Ave (Option to cross Franklin - 21 miles)

Continue to Stone Arch Bridge (24 miles total)

Down East River Road

Into Hidden Falls / Crosby

Crossing 35E to LilyDale

Down to the Big River Trail

Back to the start

Off to Lucky's we go!!!

    Despite the heat we had a great turnout!
    Moving along the river with the shade worked out well.

    Very nice ride, I enjoyed it. If you kept moving, the heat wasn't an issue.

      Hi Andrew. Please be sure to bring a signed waiver for your friend. If he is under 18, his parent needs to sign for him. Thx!

      My friend is unable to come tonight - had to bike to the U today. With the heat today, I doubt I'll be showing up tonight
