4th of July Cycling Events

Are you looking to do a ride or race this 4th of July?  There are several to choose from for 2013.  Get the bike ready and head to one of these yearly events.

The Twin Cities Bicycling Club will hold the 32nd Annual Watermelon Ride starting at Battle Creek Regional Park in Maplewood, MN.  It consists of 15, 25 and 50 mile routes and will conclude with a 4th of July picnic.  This ride has full support for the 15 and 25 mile routes, but the 50 mile route is unsupported so be prepared for flats and minor repairs.  Online pre-registration ends June 30th.  Same day registration is available by filling out the registration form and bringing it to the registration table before the ride start with a check made out to the Twin Cities Bicycling Club.  Ride is rain or shine and 100% of net proceeds benefit Cycles For Change.

The Hiawatha Bicycling Club is sponsoring its 14th Annual Tour D'Amico Bicycle Tour.  This year's tour includes three new routes to choose from, 29.7, 44 and a metric century-62 mile, all with full SAG support.  After your ride refuel with a lunch buffet from D'Amico & Sons.  Online registration is available and ride packet pick up is at D'Amico & Sons at 7804 Olson Memorial Hwy in Golden Valley from 8:00 to 10:30 am the morning of the ride. 

Milltown Cycles will be holding their 14th Annual 4th of July Northfield Criterium in Downtown Northfield.  This Minnesota Cycling Federation Rider of the Year race event draws some great amateur road racers from all over Minnesota, Iowa and Wisconsin.  Even if you are not participating, it's a great time and very exciting  to watch.  Registration opens at 8 am the day of the event.


This year's 4th of July Ride contains three routes to choose from, 38, 48 and 76 miles.  These routes will challenge riders as they travel through river valleys and bluffs in the Driftless Region of Southern Minnesota near La Crescent.  For more information go to the events page of the Bicycle LaCrosse website or call 800-658-9424.
