"Bike MS: Star Tribune TRAM Ride 2009 takes you back to where it all started, Ortonville on the South Dakota border. Through the southern part of the state, the route hits veteran host towns Montevideo, Redwood Falls, St. Peter and New Prague. It culminates at Welch Village, just outside of Red Wing. This year's ride offers you the chance to experience Minnesota from your saddle and enjoy five nights of small town hospitality during this cycling vacation. Hand-picked roads, beautiful campsites, Midwest cookin' and homegrown entertainment are just some of the things that have made this tour the "Ultimate Minnesota Road Trip" for 20 years."
"In 2002, numerous Minnesota AIDS service organizations joined together to form the Minnesota Fighting AIDS on Bikes non-profit organization, which created and produces the Red Ribbon Ride. MN-FAB includes eight HIV/AIDS service organizations: African American AIDS Task Force, The Aliveness Project, Clare Housing, Hope House of St. Croix Valley, Minnesota AIDS Project, One Heartland, Park House, and Rural AIDS Action Network. MN-FAB is proud to produce the annual Red Ribbon Ride. The Red Ribbon Ride is a four-day, nearly 300-mile bike ride which starts at the Mall of America and travels to overnight stops in Lake City, Rochester and Northfield, MN. The Ride finishes at the State Capitol in St. Paul. Eight Minnesota AIDS service organizations benefit from the money raised. Riders and Crew pay a $75 registration fee. Riders are required to raise $1,500; Crew are encouraged to raise $250."
"Now in its 18th year, the Habitat 500 is a bicycle ride (not a race) and fundraiser that covers 500 miles over the course of 7 days (an average of 71 miles per day). Each rider raises funds from family, friends, businesses, and church groups and designates the Habitat for Humanity affiliates they wish to support (both locally and around the world). We limit participation to 135 riders. Each rider is required to raise a minimum of $900, but the average amount raised is nearly $2,600 per rider."
"Three of the best things in America are the Fourth of July, bicycling, and watermelon. And there's an opportunity to enjoy all three of them at the 28th Annual Watermelon Ride, on Saturday, July 4th. It's a fun and sociable family ride - with route options of 15, 25, and 55 miles - followed by an excellent Fourth of July picnic at Snail Lake in Shoreview. You can start riding in the morning, anytime between 7:30 and 10 AM, at the Deluxe Corporation parking lot on Victoria, just south of 694. Click here for a map to the ride start. It'll be a great day to go for a bike jaunt, eat and socialize at the picnic, and get home in plenty of time for the fireworks."
