Welcome All Cyclists
Come Ride With Us!
TCBC is the largest recreational bicycling club in the Minneapolis-Saint Paul area. TCBC has rides and events for a range of skill levels. Most of our members are adults at an intermediate, non-racer level who enjoy the benefits of group riding. TCBC rides are open to members and non-members. We are a 501c3 non-profit organization that is operated primarily by volunteers.
Returns April 28th
This ride brings back memories of the Minnesota Ironman, which often travelled through Wright County in the 1980's and 90's on some of these same roads, usually on the last Sunday in April. It's Not the Ironman because it is now a regular TCBC ride, with no cost and no food served. See the ride calendar for more information.
Cedar Lake Trail closing starting May 13 till 2021
FROM A RECENT NEWS RELEASE: Leaders especially should take note of this. And some or all of the Kenilworth Trail will also be closed. This has come up fast and will seriously impact many trail users.
The Cedar Lake LRT Regional Trail will be closed beginning May 13 from Excelsior Boulevard in Hopkins east to France Avenue in St. Louis Park. The closure is due to Southwest Light Rail Transit construction and is expected to last through fall 2021.
A detour will be in place that utilizes the North Cedar Lake Regional Trail and the local bicycle network to connect users to the Midtown Greenway. There will be a detour around impacted areas in Minneapolis as well. See the Three Rivers Parks website.
The trail will be fully reconstructed upon completion of the project and will include grade-separated crossings at Beltline Boulevard, Wooddale Avenue and Blake Road.
