The Northeast Ride, slated for June 22, 2013, will take cyclists on a tour of Northeast Minneapolis, stopping at one of each of the neighborhoods’ parks. The ride will also take participants through the arts district, touring past the great Northeast creative buildings and historical landmarks like the Casket Arts Building and the Grain Belt Brewery, while using some of the new bike trails and bikeways.
The ride will be just under 12 miles with stops throughout in each neighborhood of Northeast Minneapolis. We’ll be starting at 10am at the Northeast Minneapolis Armory. The route is designed to be family friendly and accessible for riders of all levels of experience. Each registered rider will be sent event information and at event day check-in everyone will be given a map of the route and a goody bag courtesy of our sponsors! We’ll continue to update the site via our blog to make sure everyone has the information they need to have a great time on ride day.
On ride day, please bring a bike lock, your helmet and other safety equipment, and a smile :-)
