The Great Northern River Ride
Tue., May 24 to Fri., June 3, 2016
The Great Northern River Tour
will take you on a fun and
adventure filled tour from St. Louis, Missouri to Minneapolis, Minnesota in 10 days.
This tour is more rural and rolling. We’ll pass a number of river boats and locks as we stop
for a visit in Mark Twain’s Hannibal. From there we’ll meander along the river and cross into
Illinois. The riding continues to be scenic, rural small town America. Time is passing and the
river is calling. As we cross into Wisconsin, the terrain really rolls up and down along huge
bluffs created by the great Glaciers that created the tremendous Mississippi River Valley.
The scenery on top of the bluffs is fantastic. You'll find the people as friendly as the
views, and you’ll enjoy the reaction when you tell them where you started cycling. After our
final overnight in Red Wing, a quaint river town made famous for its shoes and pottery, tackle
the last hills and roll into Eagan a suburb just south of Minneapolis.
This is truly a ride to remember!
