Outreach Rides

These special category rides are non-TCBC rides that are eligible for TCBC mileage credit, but are not covered by TCBC insurance. Outreach rides are designed to increase our club's visibility in and support of non-pledge biking events in the broader biking community. A TCBC ride leader will be present at qualifying Outreach Rides to allow members to sign up for mileage, but it is the sole responsibility of participating members to sign up for the event and pay the registration fee. The organizers of the event are solely responsible for its quality and safety. Members are strongly encouraged to wear their TCBC jerseys when participating in Outreach Rides and ride in a manner that reflects favorably upon TCBC.

Ride the Ridges

September 15, 2018

Winona, Minnesota

The sixth annual Ride the Ridges offers riders four fun and challenging routes through the blufflands of Southeast Minnesota-one of the most scenic and bicycle-friendly regions in the Upper Midwest. Well-planned routes guide riders through lush valleys along meandering streams and up challenging climbs to bluff-top ridges overlooking the expansive Mississippi River valley. Choose from low-traffic, paved routes with distances of 23, 44, 67 miles or a Century. All routes are sagged and have rest stops staffed with friendly volunteers welcoming riders with refreshments, snacks, and local delicacies – ranging from donuts to lefse to beer. All riders receive a meal voucher and are invited to a post-ride party at Island City Brewing Co. Organized by the Winona Rotary Club, Ride the Ridges is sponsored by over fifty businesses, organizations, and individuals. Event proceeds support Feed My Starving Children, Kids Summer Lunch Program, and Rotary Literacy Initiatives.

Registration opens June 1.
