Saturday, we have two ride options for you. You may ride to Cannon Falls, stop at Hi-Quality Bakery for a treat, and then return home. Or, you may add nearly 30 miles and continue on through White Rock, Vasa, Welch, and Miesville where we’ll stop again before returning to Rosemount. The ride will start at 08:00 and the weather forecast for the ride is mixed clouds and sun with temps 76 to 87 degrees and winds SSE at 5 to 7 mph.Read More
It’s going to be another windy day this week, and we will celebrate my 50th birthday by riding to Cannon Falls and stopping at Hi-Quality Bakery for a treat before returning to Rosemount. The 56-mile ride will start at 08:00. The weather forecast for the ride is sunny with temps 69 to 79 and winds SSE at 9 to 11 mph.Read More
You’ve heard the saying about April showers, right? Well, rain showers are coming Saturday (and some more coming next week) so we will ride on Sunday morning at 09:00. We’ll ride south to Cannon Falls, and bring your own food, because the bakery isn’t open on Sunday. We’ll make a stop at the county park at Lake Byllesby and skip the trip into town. We’ll follow the 56-mile route counterclockwise and should finish around Noon.Read More
This year’s hot weather is mostly gone now, and Saturday it will be a lot cooler than it was last week, so you’ll need to get out your cool-weather kit for the ride. If you need some help figuring out what to wear, check out the posts about clothing on our Cycling Tips blog, including a new post, titled “A Clothing Guide for Cyclists,” that I wrote to help new riders extend their season.
It’ll be windy from the south again this week, so we’ll try to avoid the cross winds by riding to Cannon Falls. We’ll leave Rosemount at 8:00 and follow the posted route clockwise, with a stop at Hi-Quality Bakery.Read More
This week, let's ride to Cannon Falls. We'll follow the route counterclockwise, leaving Rosemount at 8:00, and stop at Hi-Quality Bakery.
Also, Fred Storti sent me this message about a SPBRC ride on Labor Day.
I hope you will be able to join us for the the Sept. 3, Labor Day Ride, starting at Marine On St. Croix. There will be two rides:Read More
It has been three weeks since our last outdoor ride, and I bet you're as frustrated as I am about this spring weather. To try to make up for lost time, I'm planning to do two rides this weekend. Neither ride will be fast or furious, until the end, because most of us have spring legs and we need to keep everyone together and having fun. There's both a morning and an afternoon ride, so hopefully you can make it to one or both of them.Read More
Doug Blomker will be leading the ride Saturday to Cannon Falls. You'll ride counter clockwise from Starbucks in Rosemount, leaving at 08:15. Follow Doug's direction and keep the pace at a level that everyone can sustain until you get back to CR 46, when anything goes. It will be cool an windy, so dress appropriately.
For those of you who were able to join us last Saturday, Gary treated us to some hills and a couple of unexpected stops at Minnehaha Academy and a car event in Eagan, where we saw some hot cars, including McLaren, Porsche, Corvette, and Mustang Shelby. Thanks Gary!
This Saturday, the weather looks like it will again be perfect and we will ride to Cannon Falls clockwise for 56 miles. The start is 08:15 sharp at Starbucks and a finish time around 11:30.
