Hutchinson Rotary has a goal of continuing to grow this event and exceed 300 riders! This may be the year we do it. Don’t miss out!
About the Ride
This ride is being hailed by riders as one of the most scenic and hospitable rides in Minnesota! With three ride options, this ride is perfect for families, novice bike riders, and experienced riders. NEW this year; 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). There is not a “group start”, but rather riders can begin the ride as early as 6:30am and as late as 8:30am. All riders must be back the Crow River Winery and checked-in by 3pm. Riders wishing to extend their ride by riding the Dakota and Luce Line Trail system to/from the metro area can learn more here.
- 12 mile ride: The route will be 100% on the Luce Line Trail, and you can see the FINAL route here for the Oddfellow’s 12 Mile Loop here. From the Crow River Winery to a turn-around point by Super America, and then back. Kids 10 and under are free, but still need to register. GPX file for loops
- 25 mile ride: The FINAL route for the Piepenburg Loop can be seen here (note: this loop actually maps 28 miles) and will utilize part of the Luce Line Trail, then head into beautiful lake country. There will be rest stops, refreshments, and SAG wagon along the route. GPX file for loops
- 50 mile ride: The FINAL route for the Dassel/Lakes Loop can be seen here and will utilize part of the Luce Line Trail, then head into beautiful lake country. In addition to this being a fully-supported ride, showers will be made available to 50 mile riders. GPX file for loops
