Grape Stomp Ride this coming Saturday!

Looking for something truly different?

The 3rd Annual (except not in 2020 last year) Grape Stomp Ride will be this coming Saturday, about an hour west of the Twin Cities, near Hutchinson Mn.  

There is a 51 mile route rated as an A/B ride, however the Luce Line paved trail from Winsted to Hutch is about 20 miles in length, so if just wanted - an out and back all trail ride - could do whatever mileage wanted - up to 40 total.  Then could all rejoin after the rides, to watch the Grape Stomping competition together.  

Here are more details from the ride description.

Additional Information
While listed as an "A/B" ride, I personally will be riding more like a "B" pace, 
so am planning to finish this 51 mile ride in about 4 hours at that pace, 
and including rest stop times. 
If other "B" riders are interested in riding together, 
then I will make efforts to keep the "B" group together. 
Others that want to ride faster is fine, since it's listed as "A/B".

This ride will be held about an hour west of I-494 on Highway 7, 
after Silver Lake MN at Crow River Winery, 
(please find the dark red MRBIKEY van parked near the back of the lot so as to cause the least impact to other customer parking near the front doors).
This ride route is a modified version of the Luce Line Loops 51 mile route, 
giving thanks and credit to the Hutchinson Rotary Luce Line Loops Ride Committee members. 

We will ride past lakes Belle, Cedar, Manuella, Stella and Washington. 
Our rest stop is at about mile 30 in Dassel at the Casey's Gas Station, with Water, Snacks and Rest Rooms available. 
Then low-traffic county rides as we ride past glimpses of Collinwood, Maple, Shakopee, and Swan Lakes.

After the ride, there are more options for those interested in continuing the fun - 
with food, beverage and craft vendors, 
also watching and cheering the stomp competitors at Crow River Winery Grape Stomp 2021.
