Thinking about leading the "Cruising The Crow" bike ride. 

https://ridewithgps.com/routes/43463414  

The route is 64 miles.  Does anyone have any suggestions on roads to use to make the route around 50 miles

I led that ride for many years and I have several cue sheets (pre RideWithGps days). See attached. I'd be interested in co-leading once in a while.

I use to do that ride weekly in what seems like a lifetime ago!  I always did the 52 mile route back then.  I am certain I have something with the route on it if that helps.  The 52 mile route went around Long Lake, headed to Deleno, then Watertown, and then Mayer and came back on the Wayzata trail.  I know there was an alternative to taking the trail for those who wanted to use roads, but I always used the 22 mile trail back to Wayzata.  Otherwise, that was Roger Fickbohn's ride he led back then and he may have the route you are looking for.  This is way back long before Ride with GPS was even born when we actually used cue sheets and holders on our handlebars.  Let me know if you want me to dig in my boxes before I get going on downsizing my place!  I have a bunch of the old ride sheets on many of the different rides.
