Ride Saturday, May 4

The weather Saturday is looking superb with moderate winds from the southwest, so we’ll leave Starbucks at 08:00 and ride to Prior Lake. Due to flooding around the Minnesota River, we’ll follow a route that combines the Orchard Lake and Prior Lake routes, like we did last July. In Prior Lake, we’ll stop at Edelweiss Bakery. The full route is 55 miles, and you can shorten it by 10 miles by going north via Hwy 3 from Farmington.

Regular riders are expected to contribute annual dues of $20, which we primarily use to operate the club’s website and club activities. Dues collected and not needed for club activities may be donated to bicycling-related charities. Members receive a discount at Grand Performance, our club shop. Join by the the end of May and receive a pair of custom RCC socks.

The NorthStar Grand Prix and Bike Festival needs your help to make the events happen this year. The organizers started a GoFundMe campaign to raise money to put on the races and the festival and they continue to look for a corporate sponsorship that will keep this long-standing event going for the years to come.
