12, 25, 50 Mile Luce Line Trail/Paved Road Routes

75K Gravel Grinder Route

7:00 – 9:00 AM Check-In and Departure for TCBC Outreach Ride

Riders are hailing this ride as one of the most scenic and hospitable rides in Minnesota!  With four route options, this ride is perfect for families, novice bike riders and experienced riders.  All rides will begin and end at the Crow River Winery, which connects with the Luce Line Trail via a 1/4 mile packed gravel trail (the only portion not paved is the connection from the Winery to the Luce Line Trail).  Experienced adult riders can opt to ride an alternate route on the highway a short distance to connect to the Luce Line Trail. There is not a “group start”, but rather riders can begin the ride as early as 7:00am and as late as 9:00am.  All riders must be back to Crow River Winery and checked-in by 3pm.

Route Options:

  • 12 Mile Ride:  The route will be 100% on the Luce Line Trail, other than the 1/4 mile packed gravel trail from Crow River Winery.  This is an out and back route with one refreshment station/rest stop at the turn-around point at Oddfellow’s Park, behind SuperAmerica.  Kids under 18 are free, but still need to register and have parents sign a waiver.
  • 25 Mile Ride:  (Note: this loop actually maps 28.2 miles) and will utilize part of the Luce Line Trail, then head into beautiful lake country.  There will be two refreshment stations/rest stops and a SAG wagon along the route.
  • 50 Mile Ride:  (Note: this loop actually maps 52.5 miles) and will utilize part of the Luce Line Trail, then head into beautiful lake country.  There will be four refreshment stations/rest stops and a SAG wagon along the route.
  • 75K Gravel Grinder:  This route will also utilize the Luce Line Trail out and back from Crow River Winery, but will venture onto rural gravel roads with rolling hills and beautiful lake views.  There will be one food/refreshment/aid station and one unmanned water station along this route.
