Pedal on the Pounds

June 29, 2024 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

The once annual, now occasional, Pedal On The Pounds (POTP) bike ride is back!

The inaugural ride started and stopped at the Cold Spring Bakery, hence the name Pedal On The Pounds.  We have modified the caloric source to a pot-luck of desserts, fruit, and treats that a volunteer schleps to the rest-stops.

This is a family and friends ride, if you ride a bike – you qualify as a friend. The last POTPs included three E-bikes-all are welcome.

There are two routes that share the same rest-stops. The 30-ish mile route will have a casual pace of 10-13 mph and the 50 mile route will be closer to 16-19mph.  In the past we have attracted 30-35 riders.

I believe the Start/Stop location will be at the West Bridge Park in Monticello, MN, however, construction may require us to move.

Time:  Pre-ride photo at 8:50 – with the start immediately following
Location:  West Bridge Park, Monticello, MN, most likely.
Routes:  30-ish and 50-ish miles, TBD
Entry Fee:  Bring something to share
Charity:  None assigned yet

Volunteer opportunities:
SAG support
Route Signs – Friday afternoon/evening
