Please join us for the 11th annual BIKE MINNESTOA! bike tour for miles of smiles over Labor Day weekend!
Our fantastic 4-day, 3-night bike expedition has been a favorite with cyclists of all ages for a decade, and each year brings a new adventure as we set up camp at a different state park and explore the area on daily loop rides.
This year we'll be at Glendalough State Park and ride between 30-60 miles each day, along highways, paved city streets and trails.
We'll learn about the local area with fun program stops such as a tour of the shuttered asylum in Fergus Falls.
Ken Nyberg, creator of amazing roadside sculptures in Vining, will give us a tour of the sculpture garden. And, of course, no bike ride would be complete without an ice cream cone at the old general store in Clittheral, and learning about the early settlement of the area.
All lunches are catered en route and dinner with a program is provided at a local restaurant.
To see our planned stops for this year, visit the full itinerary.

BIKE MINNESOTA! is my favorite ride! It combines well-planned routes with local culture. The size of the group allows for great conversation on the road! -Julie Gugin
This will be my forth year of BIKE MINNESOTA! Each year I meet wonderful enthusiastic people who have stories to tell about other bike outings. The fantastic programs along the way allow me to learn new things about the region and the food is always beyond expectations! -Dave McRoberts
