Come Join Us for the Fall All Club Ride on the West Side in Minnetonka Saturday, September 2nd.
We’re starting at Minnetonka City Hall Complex, the same convenient location we’ve used for the Fall All Club Ride using the revised routes that debuted in 2019. There are four scenic routes so that there is a ride for all levels and interests of TCBC riders. There will be a 28-mile route for those of you who would like a shorter ride. It will have one designated rest stop and will feature ride leaders for both C and B/C levels.
The 50-mile route, with 2 rest stops, offers more challenge and distance. This route will include leaders for both B and A/B levels. If you want to put in some serious miles that day, we also have a 75-mile route with three rest stops and a 100-mile route with four rest stops just for you! The 50, 75, and 100-mile routes head out west into Excelsior, Navarre, Mound, Minnetrista, St. Bonifacius, Norwood Young America, Mayer, Watertown, Maple Plain, and Rockford, and return on rolling country roads past scenic lakes and the Crow River. Ride with GPS links and cue sheets will be provided for all ride routes.
There is plenty of parking available in the parking lots adjoining Arenas A and B. The rest rooms are located behind Arena B facing the soccer fields. The sign-in and ride briefing will be at the amphitheater/shelter toward the back of the complex, closer to Arena B and down the hill from the Community Center. The ride briefing will start at 9:30 and then we’ll break into groups for each ride distance where the leaders will go over the routes. There will be a staggered start with the 100-mile group heading out first. We will have a police officer at the stop light on Minnetonka Boulevard to get us safely on the road to begin our day.
Again this year, the ride lengths will be posted on the calendar as separate rides that you can pre-register for. You’ll be able to see who’s coming and who you might be riding with for each ride distance. But you can still change your mind on the miles you decide to ride when you check in at the ride start.
The weatherman has again promised perfect weather this year and we know he or she is always correct. See you there on September 2nd in Minnetonka! The Minnetonka City Hall Complex is located at 14600 Minnetonka Blvd (just west of 494 on Minnetonka Blvd and north on Williston Road).
