The Twin Cities 100 Showcases Our Extensive Urban Trail System

The Twin Cities 100 is an urban bike ride in its second year.  Ride founder and director, Ryan Diedrich told me, "We ride a loop based 100-mile course through the existing urban bike trails, lane and boulevards of Minneapolis-St. Paul Metro area."  The mission statement for the ride is simple, "The Twin Cities area has one of the most extensive and active urban trail systems in the U.S. We want you to get out there and enjoy it!"

This free and unsupported ride is open to all ages and abilities and will be held on Saturday, September 6th starting at a base camp set up at the picnic area near the Lake Harriet Bandshell in Minneapolis.

The Twin Cities 100 recently released the following statement:

 Hello Everyone!

We are very proud to announce that registration is now open for the 2014 Twin Cities 100 Urban Bike Ride!

Following last years incredibly successful 2013 Twin Cities 100 Founder’s Ride we have made some serious upgrades with a brand new website, including streamlined registration, new ways of giving back to support the cause (Donations!) and a shiny new merchandise store (arriving shortly)!

For those of you new to the Twin Cities 100, simply put:
“We are a gathering of passionate cyclists who set out each fall to experience and showcase the amazing cycling infrastructure that the Minneapolis - Saint Paul metro area has to offer.“

Each fall we host a FREE urban bike ride that takes you through 100 miles worth of these two great cities. Last year we held our Founding Ride with a turn-out that was far better than we had ever
anticipated going into this and we met some great people along the way who showed up, had a fun time out there riding the trails, getting to know new people and experiencing what the cities have to offer. And that is what the Twin Cites 100 hopes to stand for.

The 2014 Twin Cities 100 will be held on Saturday September 6th at 7:30am and will conclude when you cross the finish line 100 miles later. The ride is free, open to all ages and ability levels and is a completely self-supporting course. Course details are to follow, but for now get on over to our new website at www.ridetwincities.org, fill out a FREE registration form and do please consider giving a donation.

There is no cap on registration, so please spread the word!

We hope to see you on the trails!
