RideMN1 is a nonprofit Cancer Awareness Organization – we are an educational organization – No fundraising required!
We cross Minnesota each September promoting healthy lifestyles – get those screenings! – while carrying our message that we are winning the war to end cancer. Join us for a different tour – You will know everyone’s name by the end of the week. Participant feedback consistently labels us as the ‘most fun Bike Tour’. There are no loops for us; we are on a mission.

Registration for our 2024 Minnesota Crossing opens on February 1st.
We will be riding MN #1, Minnesota’s longest highway (our namesake), from beginning to end.

The dates and itinerary are:

9/7 Sat Warren – Oslo – Warren (Optional Warmup) 17 miles each way, 34 total
9/8 Sun Warren – Grygla 62 miles
9/9 Mon Grygla – Red Lake 60

9/12 Thu Cook – Ely 45
9/13 Fri Ely Layover 0
9/14 Sat Ely – Silver Bay 67 Total = 361 miles (395 miles with Optional Saturday Warmup)

Our Ride is all-inclusive (all meals, camping/lodging, luggage transport, and SAG support are included). This year, we will stay in motels Monday (Red Lake) and Wednesday (Cook), wrapped around Tuesday night in Effie, which will have very limited services.

This is an outstanding route!!! There is a lot to see in Ely on our layover.
We will also be offering luxury motor coach service on Saturday morning from Garrison/Aitkin, MN (leaving at 9 am) to Warren and back to Garrison/Aitkin from Silver Bay at the conclusion.
