The MN Ironman Bike Ride is now the Freebike ride

Since 1967, the Minnesota Ironman Bike Ride has challenged bicyclists around the upper Midwest yearly. Today, Free Bikes 4 Kidz (FB4K’z), the event’s benefactors, keeps everything cyclists love about Minnesota’s longest-running bike ride, fun. This year they are giving it a new name, a new look, and another new location and routes to the ride. The new name, Freebike, represents the future of the ride and your support of Free Bikes 4 Kidz MN (FB4K’z).

The Freebike Ride is family-friendly

The ride will start this year at the Minnesota Twins Stadium (Target Field) and finish at Fulton Brewery in Minneapolis. Why the big change to the ride route?

Jay, from FB4K’z, tells us at HaveFunBiking the reasons. “First, the emergence of two great new event partners – The Minnesota Twins Foundation and Fulton Brewing. Second, and perhaps more importantly, riders will enjoy smoother pavement, wider shoulders, and better bike infrastructure to make their time on the bike as enjoyable as possible. Plus, our post-ride block party at the Fulton Taproom means riders will have a few extra hours. Rather than in past years, the rush to finish up the ride and make it back in time to celebrate before the party wraps up.”

All styles of cycles are welcome on the Freebike Ride

Three routes to test yourself and help the kids

On this year’s ride, choose from three epic routes (25, 50, and 100 miles), while supporting the mission of Free Bikes 4 Kidz MN.
