THE TOUR

    All tours will start and end at the Eastman Nature Center, 13351 Elm Creek Rd, Maple Grove, MN 55369. The Park has 20 miles of asphalt trails. We will have one ride on Thursday at noon (southern loop plus ride on Rush Creek Regional Trail to the Mississippi Regional Gateway Park) and another ride on Friday morning at 9:00 (Elm Creek exterior loop ride). Each ride will offer many places to stop and relax or explore.

    The Elm Creek Park Reserve is an outdoor lovers’ dream. At 4,900 acres, it’s the largest park in Hennepin County. The park provides enough amenities to keep people coming all year round. Cyclists especially will enjoy the 20 miles of well-paved twists, turns, climbs and dips. (Separately, there are an additional 13 miles of mountain biking trails).  The trails circle round the park in a loop, offering an interesting way to experience the diversity of landscapes, flora and fauna that the reserve has to offer.  Within the loop, riders will wind through open prairie, quiet wooded corridors, lakes, waterways and wetlands. For those seeking a challenge, the southern loop provides a particularly demanding ride; it’s a coaster of miles of punishing climbs and exhilarating downhill runs (so, of course, that will be one of our rides!!!). The northern section tends to be both flatter and quieter; you might see the occasional bicyclist. Take advantage of this to glide along the asphalt while enjoying unspoiled panoramas. The trail is shared so cyclists should be aware of walkers and runners.

    Option 1: Long bike ride TO/FROM Elm Creek - VERY dependent on weather: Candy and Kathy anticipate riding their bikes from Minneapolis to Elm Creek Park on Wednesday, July 31 - and back again on Friday.  Approximately 35 miles. When ordering, please select Option 1 if you wish to join us.

    Option 2: Wednesday night ride (5:00 pm). Candy and Kathy will be staying in a cabin at Elm Creek Park. We will arrive Wednesday afternoon and will be taking an early evening ride; this will be a internal path ride. Anyone in the area is welcome to join us. When ordering, please select Option 2 of you wish to join us.

    Meals and lodging (as needed) are on your own.
