Winona is the perfect hub for cycling in the Midwest. From casual riding, to mountain biking, to long road-rides, our little city has you covered. One of the region’s biggest road cycling events of the year happens in September. Ride the Ridges.
The seventh annual Ride The Ridges offers riders four fun and challenging routes through the blufflands of Southeast Minnesota on Saturday, September 21, 2019. Well-planned routes take riders through lush valleys along meandering streams and up challenging climbs to ridges overlooking the Mississippi River. All routes are sagged and have rest stops staffed with friendly volunteers who welcome riders with refreshments, snacks, and local delicacies – ranging from apples to donuts to lefse. All riders receive a meal voucher and are invited to a post-ride party.
Organized by the Winona Rotary Club, Ride The Ridges is sponsored by more than 60 businesses, organizations, and individuals. Event proceeds support Feed My Starving Children, the Community Food Shelf, and Rotary Literacy Initiatives. Visit RideTheRidges.bike for specific information and to register.
