Social Gathering Before/After



Hidden Falls Adventure

This route is almost entirely on marked bike lanes and bike trails. We will be riding on the Swede Hollow bike trail, Lilydale Bike trail, Crosby Farm and Hidden Falls trails, Mississippi River Trails, Como Avenue Bikeway, Wheelock Bikeway, Lake Phalen trails and the Bruce Vento trail. These trails can vary from exceptionally rough to exceptionally smooth and may be covered with sand and leaves, so I recommend a bike with at least 28mm tires. At Hidden Falls you will have the option of carrying your bike up the 100 steps of the Hidden Falls trail, or riding up the 20% grade of Hidden Falls Road. Either one will be a challenge, but E-bikes and road bikes will have an easier time on Hidden Falls Road and Gravel and Mountain Bikes will probably be better off doing the Hike-a-bike up the stairs. Which ever you choose, we will regroup at the Hidden Falls overlook.

I will be riding at a social “B” effort and I will attempt to keep the group together. Anyone that wants to ride ahead at a faster pace is welcome to do so, but keep in mind, if you are uncertain which way to go, just stop and wait for the “B” paced group to catch-up.

The rest stop will be at Loons Coffee, at the halfway point of the ride. We will also stop for restroom breaks whenever one is needed.

There is plenty of parking in the 11 Wells Spirits parking lot. The ride briefing will be at the Saint Paul Brewery entrance. Rest rooms will be available at the ride start, inside Saint Paul Brewing.

After the ride, socializing, beer and food will be at Saint Paul Brewing. They have one of the most interesting and beautiful outdoor beer gardens but we may want to be inside because of the weather this time of year. The inside space is also very interesting!
