April 1 - November 30

 

18k, 25, 38k & 81k.  This seasonal bike event is a great opportunity to see the northeast metro from a different perspective.  To the west, there is a 25k urban segment as well as an 18k segment that includes the Bruce Vento Regional Trail.  To the east, there is a 38k segment through some very scenic rural areas where, on a nice day, you might pass several horseback riders.  (And once you reach the turn-around point at Pine Point Park, you'll be rewarded with restrooms with indoor plumbing.)
