What better way to explore the Minneapolis Park System than on a bicycle ride on a beautiful autumn day. The Minneapolis Bike Tour, presented by Toyota, is a recreational bike ride that spans the spectacular Grand Rounds Scenic Byway System.
Ideal for both beginners and advanced cyclists from children to senior citizens, the tour is unique in that the parkways and byways are shut down to all motorized traffic so participants can ride at their own pace unhindered by traffic. Water stops and trail support are provided, and a post-event party caps the event.
The inaugural event in September 2007 drew over 4,500 cyclists.
The tour benefits The Foundation for Minneapolis Parks, which works with the Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board as well as other community leaders to ensure that our city's park system continues its legacy of service to all.
