Thank You Riders / Request for Stories

Dear 2015 Ironman Riders,

Thank you all for joining us on Sunday. It was really a spectacular day to be alive and to ride a bike.  Exceptional in fact if you compare it to last year with our extreme weather disappointment.

Sunday’s ride had nearly 2500 cyclists on the road.  Pretty cool for April in Minnesota.  You are among the best riders in the Midwest. We sagged in very few participants and had far more riders finish with 100+ miles.  Cyclists from 14 states joined us plus a few from Canada. 260 zip codes make for a great draw of serious cyclists who love a challenge.

Tour de Pines

August 15 2015

Join us for the 2015 Tour de Pines bike ride in (and around) Itasca State Park. Gorgeous, quiet routes, beautiful summer weather, and good food make this bike tour an instant classic. This is a relaxed bike tour for all cycling abilities.  Families with kids enjoy it as much as the Century riding crowd.  Itasca State Park and the surrounding area is worth the trip!  Add to that awesome volunteers and ride organizers with years of experience from running the MIBR. Join us for a memorable summer weekend of fun.
