What we're about

Welcome to the Twin Cities Adventure Riders LLC! This is a group for anyone interested in adventure motorcycle riding. The purpose is for those riders interested in exploring the world on two wheels without the bounds or limits imposed by paved roads. We welcome all skill levels and bikes. The only requirement is a passion for motorcycle adventures and that explorer attitude.

Rides would consist of short local runs and day outings to weekend trips and possibly some planned long distance adventures.

Bike selection should fall within the capabilities of an adventure or dual purpose bike such as a BMW GS, KTM Adventure, Triumph Tiger, Scrambler, Suzuki V-Strom, KLR, etc.

This is a new Meetup group, so bring your ideas, passion for riding, and sense of adventure!

Hastings - Red Wing Loop Ride

Vermillion Falls Park

Hastings - Red Wing Loop Ride 11:00 Sunday, June the 2nd This ride is very similar to last year’s Hastings Red Wing route. It was one of the more popular rides. This year the ride will be led by Bill Boyer. We start out at Vermillion Falls Park in Hastings at 11:00 and work our way south towards Red Wing on a combination of blacktop and gravel roads. We turn south just before Red Wing for some really great back roads. There are some minimal maintenance roads and once again some of gravel, so make sure your riding skills are up to the task. We will meet Sunday, June the 2nd in Hastings at 11:00 AM. We’ll make a quick lunch stop at the Culver’s in Red Wing. There is a gas station across the road from there for the dual sports that have a limited fuel range. Check out the Google maps link below for the route details. https://drive.google.com/open?id=1zHYWUHxt2Crqf-m-E-omXbEes54&usp=sharing As always, if you plan on attending the ride, make sure you read and agree with the “Rider List of Responsibilities” at: https://tcadvriders.com/riders-responsibilities I would like to thank Bill for leading this ride.
