In this photo recap, the Hiawatha Bicycling Club (HBC) celebrates the Tour D’ Amico (TDA) bike ride and picnic for the 20th year. A premier 4th of July bicycle celebration, it all began as a fun club gathering with a goal to bring old and new friends together to build membership and community ties. With the slogan "Eat Well, Laugh Often and Ride" the tradition of Tour D' Amico hasn't changed much over the years with the long-standing partnership with D' Amico and Sons Restaurants. Each year, on Independence Day, the Tour offers several scenic route options with a fabulous picnic lunch at the end. No different this year, the delicious buffet was served al fresco style, around the water fountain at the Golden Valley D' Amico's location. Enjoy by all!
Yeah it’s Friday, so stay cool and ride off on another weekend of fun
This Thursday, fun with dad on the mountain bike trails!
It's a Wheelie Wednesday fun adventure in Lebanon Hills Park
If you haven't finalized plans for your #NextBikeAdventure consider a Minnesota doubleheader with the Rock n' Roll the Lakes this Saturday and Tour of Saints, on Sunday. Both day-of bike bicycle touring events benefit the Bicycle Alliance of Minnesota and offer several route options to fit your style of riding.
This Tuesday, a fun adventure on the Mississippi River Trail
An exciting sport, this may be the last year for a while, to try or watch track cycle racing in Minnesota. Called “NASCAR on Two Wheels,” the velodrome racing program at the National Sports Center, in Blaine, MN is all about blazing speeds, gravity-defying turns and spectacular crashes making this one of the most awe-inspiring spectator's sports around.
With the return of summer heat, welcoming to most of us here in upper Midwest, we are finally feeling the warmth. With the temperatures again fluctuating up into the high nineties this week and the humidity down right tropical, here are some helpful suggestions to make the most of your summer activities while we all enjoy our warm weather outdoor activities.
If you have three or more days free and are looking for a true north biking experience in Minnesota, consider Roseau. A few miles from the Canadian border on a recent visit I found this area full of fun for off-road bicycling opportunities.
Use protection, a reminder from the '90s with Baz Luhrmann's song, "Everybody's free to wear sunscreen." A timeless reminder that many forget. We get so caught up in preparing for our races and rides. We check our equipment and focus on our nutrition. We check whether we have all our goodies and gear during the transition. We try advice online from other athletes, coaches, and magazines. However, we forget the most important thing we need to do during these summer events is to apply sunscreen and stay hydrated.
