Tour de Hoang and Joyce homes! I was surprised the gps app called out your homes! Route was a construction disaster, I needed my boots. But fun nonetheless. Thx.

On 6/24, I rode from Spring Park to a bit west of New Germany and back on the Dakota Rail Regional Trail. A pleasant ride with a bit of a cross-wind from the south.

Also, I had trouble today accessing the HBC link to report my finish of this self-paced ride. A screen came up marked DANGEROUS with concerns about phishing with instructions to click on a link for Chrome protection.

Gorgeous day for a ride! Saw lots of turtles, birds, a goose family, an eagle up in its nest. We started & ended over on the other side of the river (Old Cedar Bridge parking lot) instead of at the trail head address for this ride.

We biked 10 miles by parking in Cedar Bridge lot.

I was really hoping you'd post this ride! I was going to do it anyway but this was great motivation to do it NOW. I went with Nanette, Kent and Judy and we actually started at the Old Cedar Bridge Trailhead. Thanks! Lisa

Haggith and I met last night at the preserve. It was a Beautiful eveningand a Lovely ride. We added the trip across the old Cedar Avenue Bridge for a few extra miles. For a spring warm up this route was super.

RenaeMxxxxx

I started this ride on Tues 11/9 at 1:45pm at the Dakota Rail Trailhead in Wayzata and rode to the St Boni City office and back. Unfortunately, due to my early afternoon start time and the clear sky, the sun was strobing me through the trees that line the trail when I was riding to St Boni. Otherwise, it was a nice crisp fall day for a ride.

I started this ride in Wayzata and went to St. Boni. This ride and trail were BEAUTIFUL! I did it on Sunday, Sept 19 and although it was quite windy and 90 degrees out, I loved every

minute of it. The trail was great, it was all level with no hills (which was good because I'm riding with a strained, sore knee). I will definitely be doing that ride again, especially when I

need to ride alone. Thanks for the maps and everything provided for that ride!

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

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

MaryBxxx

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.

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

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.

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!

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.

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

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!

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
