Family Ride to Minnehaha Falls Park

FUN Family Ride to Minnehaha Falls Park with a Treat Stop! 


Celebrate Minneapolis Bike Week! Enjoy a beautiful spring ride on the bike trail to Minnehaha Falls Park with your family*. Stop at the park to play, check out the falls, get a treat at Dairy Queen or Sea Salt, and hang out with some other cool bike families*. 

Meet at Lake Nokomis, at the bike racks next to the restrooms, across from Sandcastle. Ride to Minnehaha Falls Park. Ride back on the same trail or go your own way home. Ride is approximately 3 miles in each direction. Ride is on bike trail the entire way, with some street crossings. This will be a family-friendly pace, no drop ride (we will ride at the pace of the slowest riders, no one will be left behind, somewhere in the 5-10 mph range).

*Family is however you define it. ALL are welcome.
