The Great Northern River Tour will take you on a fun and adventure filled tour from St. Louis, Missouri to Minneapolis, Minnesota in 10 days.

This tour is more rural and rolling. We’ll pass a number of river boats and locks as we stop for a visit in Mark Twain’s Hannibal. From there we’ll meander along the river and cross into Illinois. The riding continues to be scenic, rural small town America. Time is passing and the river is calling. As we cross into Wisconsin, the terrain really rolls up and down along huge bluffs created by the great Glaciers that created the tremendous Mississippi River Valley. The scenery on top of the bluffs is fantastic. You'll find the people as friendly as the views, and you’ll enjoy the reaction when you tell them where you started cycling. After our final overnight in Red Wing, a quaint river town made famous for its shoes and pottery, tackle the last hills and roll into Eagan a suburb just south of Minneapolis.

This is truly a ride to remember!
