Welcome to Hastings! Just a short trip out of the metro area but totally a small town feel. We will be meeting near downtown along the river at Levee Park (20 Ramsey St, Hastings, MN 55033). Parking is available under the Hastings Bridge and on nearby streets.
This Saturday ride is clearly marked and generally smooth and level. It is a relaxing ride with options for riders with varying interests and capabilities. We will return to Hastings and relax on the deck at the American Legion, if there is room!
Our ride has many options.
#1 First we will travel west along the Mississippi River Trail and through sections of the Spring Lake Park Reserve. Hopefully this year we will see the buffalo herd! Scenery through this area is spectacular and you will be happy you have an eBike to help with the hills! Distance from Hastings and back for this first section is 20 miles.
#2 For those who might want a bit of a challenge, the Pine Bend Trail is easily accessible if you wish to travel on to the north. This trail is a mixture of paved and hard packed gravel. While it has wonderful river and lake views to the east, it has heavy industrial areas to the west. BUT, after a few miles, you will find yourself at the Pine Bend Bluffs Scientific and Natural Area (SNA). The Mississippi River Regional Trail passes through this site which is in an Audubon Important Bird Area. And the Mississippi River Water Trail is adjacent to this site. Find stunning views from 200 foot bluffs overlooking the Mississippi at this SNA, one of the least disturbed sites along the river in the Twin Cities. And filled with solitude!
#3 For those of us returning to Hastings, a third option is to continue on the Great River Road, across the Hastings River and into Wisconsin. A short additional 7 mile ride will take us to the river's western shore across from Prescott. Prescott is a favorite for those looking for lunch!!! Then it is back to Hastings.
#4 There is another option/challenge. A few of us want to travel from St. Paul to Hastings, enjoy the Hastings group ride, and then return to St Paul. This will add considerable distance and challenge. If you are interested, please let us know by emailing us at email@example.com; we will get back to you to discuss.
