Twin Cities offroad trail systems receive Bronze Level Ride Center designation from International Mountain Bicycling Association (IMBA). The IMBA Ride Center™ designation represents the Association’s Model Trail recognition for large scale mountain bike facilities that offer something for every rider of every ability.
Since 1994 the Minnesota Off-Road Cyclists (MORC), a IMBA Chapter, has worked diligently on it’s mission of ‘Gaining and Maintaining Trails’ in the Twin Cities metro area.
Today MORC’s wide network of 100+ recurrent volunteers help to maintain over 85 miles of singletrack within 11 parks and is the organization behind the acclaimed Cottage Grove Bike Park. During the Winter months, there are over 50 miles of groomed singletrack trails to explore and enjoy in the Minneapolis/St. Paul Area.
Consistently ranked America’s top cycling destination, the Twin Cities with over 80 miles of offstreet bike paths and 40 miles of bike lanes, has more than 40 breweries, 20 museums and over 50 live entertainment venues to set the stage for a premier riding and vacation destination. Combine these details with the IMBA Ride Center designation for offroad trails and you’ll soon see why this area is top in the nation!
