Ride Saturday, June 29

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.

Ride Sunday, April 28

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.

Ride Saturday, September 22

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.

Rides Sat, Sun, April 21–22

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.

Ride Saturday, Aug 12

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.
