Welcome to the 2017 Minnesota Ironman Bicycle Ride
Please join us on Sunday April 30th for the 51st running of this unique bicycle tour. While not a race the Minnesota Ironman has a reputation for its challenging routes and often unkind weather. Still several thousand riders join in the fun each year. We hope you will consider joining us as a kickoff to the bicycling season here in Minnesota.
Exciting for 2017 is our move to Waconia. We have lots of work ahead to get permits from city, state and county officials but we are excited by the riding opportunities in this beautiful area.
Our thanks to Washington County for hosting us the past four years. We felt a change in scenery would be appreciated by our riders. We are planning indoor rest stops and a beautiful high school for our starting point.
Several routes with various distances are planned but until our permits move further along we will share them with you later.
Registration opens on February 1st. Grab your friends, train together and make this ride your next great adventure.
We love hosting this ride and so appreciate your participation. Watch our website for regular ride updates. We will send you our Ride Day Newsletter in April that will answer all your questions.
Thank you for joining us.
