I’m an Ambassador for Ride with GPS, a phenomenal website for creating cycling routes. I’ve created 250+ mile routes from scratch and had zero navigation issues, so you could say I’m a super fan of their service. 😉
I feel like pavement cycling around the Twin Cities is a little more self explanatory than finding great gravel roads, so I’ve focused on the off-road offerings.
Want to support my ability to continue to create routes with customized cues and the food and water stops called out? My trial premium subscription to RWGPS ends soon. If you’d like to help me renew, head on over to PayPal.
Lakeville and Beyond: Gravel and Pavement Combo
This route showcases some of the excellent gravel just south of the metro area, starting in Lakeville and heading south into the local townships. Look for the old graveyards and the active airport on your route! This route is 33 miles and under 1000 feet of elevation.
Cannon Gravel Hill Torture
A gorgeous, scenic tour through the countryside on gravel and minimum maintenance roads. Get your climbing legs ready! This route is 83 miles and nearly 5000 feet of climbing.
Coming Soon: Cannon Gravel and Pavement Medley
Coming Soon: Alexander 380
The ambassador route isn’t up yet, but here’s a preview of the basic route.
