07-19-2021 - Harriet Island to the swing bridge

KentMxxxxxxxx

Left from Olin condo, w÷nt down MRT to Lilydale poo & yacht club to Harriet Island, to swing bridge and b!cj to Olin.

That accounted for the extra mileage

I found an ice cream place 3 miles from the swing bridge - I added the to and from to my ride.

Thanks for posting-its a nice ride!

07-19-2021 - Harriet Island to the swing bridge

RickFxxxxxxx

I don’t know if we get credit for our full ride or not but we decided to start at Mendota, skipped the airport and accumulated 30 miles. Our fate is in your hands. LOL Please include Jeanne in whatever you decide. Thanks

07-19-2021 - Harriet Island to the swing bridge

JeanneSxxxxxxxx

We started in Mendota and returned there for lunch so added about 10 miles to the ride.

05-27-2021 - Grey Cloud Medium

Greg thanks for a ride - it was a great early morning for a ride! A little variation on this one from last year? Seemed like a couple extra hills.

05-24-2021 - Meandering through Eagan

05-06-2021 - St. Boni Bound

HansGxxxxxxxxx

Great to see my biker buddies again!

05-03-2021 - Blooming Hop

CathleenMxxxxxxxx

Nice route, felt I had covered a lot of territory. Ride with GPS could not handle the multiple right angle turns that Smetana makes, so it resulted in longer route. Feature to return to rout3 was very confused too.

05-03-2021 - Blooming Hop

LisaSxxxxx

Ron, I really enjoyed this ride! Well done!

05-03-2021 - Blooming Hop

KentMxxxxxxxx

Ended up missing a turn a d wound up back at the start after 5 miles. Backtracked the route and found the error. Able to finish the ride from there.

05-03-2021 - Blooming Hop

NanetteMxxxxxxxx

GPS directions don't work well every time the path crosses itself. We went the wrong direction several times. One we went the correct way, we enjoyed the route. Hope to do it again.

04-30-2021 - C Falls to Red Wing

GregSxxxxxx

Great ride! Glad to mix in some road riding along with the trail. Thanks for posting.

GregSxxxxxx

Nice route. Enjoyed the lakes. We encountered a bit of snow/sleet along the way. Brrrr.

04-20-2021 - Tour Duh Lakes

DawnWxxxxx

A Great route, Leon! I look forward to doing it again on a warm and sunny day. Using the cue sheet, we found that there was a cue missing between #10 & #11—to turn R at the Taco Bell. John added a cue. Greg was along and had RWGPS activated, so we didn’t go too far off course. Thanks!

04-20-2021 - Tour Duh Lakes

MaryFxxxxx

Beautiful scenery.

Fun ride. Wind was a challenge...but it builds character.

04-04-2021 - Scenes of St Paul V Neighborhoods

JudyOxxxxxxxxx

Dawn and John,

We LOVED this ride! It took us through some new neighborhoods. I didn't ride the starting loop because I had an appt. that I needed to get back for, but Ron did it at the end and said it was very pretty. I would do this ride again sometime. Thanks for creating the route and posting.

Judy

04-04-2021 - Scenes of St Paul V Neighborhoods

RonaldJxxxxx

Significantly different than the other Scenes of St. Paul rides. Lots of new neighborhoods and trails that really show the diversity of St. Paul. This is a good self-paced ride because you can stop at the many interesting sights that are pointed out in the cues. We loved it!

03-25-2021 - St. Croix River Crossing

DawnWxxxxx

Thanks for the ride, Greg! It would help to put ride start location as cue 0.

03-25-2021 - St. Croix River Crossing

Wiiiiindy! But nice to be doing club rides again, even if they are self paced.

03-25-2021 - Scenes of St Paul I

RickFxxxxxxx

The wind was a bit daunting but it was an otherwise nice ride.

03-25-2021 - Scenes of St Paul I

Under "Ride Details" it has us posted as: Ride Date: 03/25/2021 Ride Time 09:00. But we rode on 04/04/2012 and started at 12:00pm.

Thank You for posting this ride, Dawn!

03-09-2021 - St. Boni Bound

RickFxxxxxxx

A little snow west of St. Boni but nice ride on a beautiful day.

03-09-2021 - St. Boni Bound

ArtBxxxx

A great and a great trail

01-09-2021 - SSP Piram Trail

KentMxxxxxxxx

Far and away the majority of the ride was dry trail. The snow and ice sections were either easy to get around or no issue for fat tire (even without studs!)

Super nice day. 5 bald eagles. Only bummer was a long wait for train trying to leave the DNR lot!

This trail is the east side of a ride I do quite often. But this was the first time I have been on the new part of the trail north of the dog park. I can imagine an easy connection from Plato over to Harriet Island and the Lilydale trail.

Thanks for posting the ride!

11-01-2020 - St. Boni Bound

There are potential trail closures as you get close to St Boni. Barricades are up but you can get through. We continued through St Boni in order to take photos at Lake Waconia. 32 miles

11-01-2020 - St. Boni Bound

KentMxxxxxxxx

Signs up that trail is closed about 2 miles outside of St Boni. There are 2 very short sections of broken trail. Dirt and gravel but very passable

Nippy weather with wind and temps in the high 40s, but a beautiful ride anyway.

09-23-2020 - Grey Cloud Island - Short

JeanMxxxxx

This was such a fun ride.

It is hard to believe the gorgeous rural scenery is so close to Minneapolis.

The fall colors are at their peak.

Thank you Greg!

09-23-2020 - Grey Cloud Island - Short

MaryBxxx

I really liked this version of the ride! Thanks Greg.

09-23-2020 - Grey Cloud Island - Short

EdNxxxxx

Nice ride. Two garmin ssues - a bridge built over US 10 a few years ago reconfigured some roads getting around within the first mile or so. After 20 miles or so,bit kept telling me we were going in the wrong direction on a trail. An upcoming road turn negated that direction.

09-22-2020 - North Around the River on Trails

JeanneSxxxxxxxx

It’s always amazing to be able to ride through the heart of the city on bike trails. Such a different perspective! Enjoyed the Autumn scenery too,

09-22-2020 - North Around the River on Trails

RickFxxxxxxx

We loved riding trails new to us on the Northside although we found some of the GPS directions confusing.

I liked this trail a lot. I hadn't been to Elm Creek in many years (and then just as a runner for the Autumn Woods 10K).

Very fun. Thanks!
