A group of more than 100 bicyclists will take a one-way trip on the Northstar Commuter Rail Line on Saturday, June 22.
They won’t be left stranded in Big Lake, however. Instead, the group will pedal back to Minneapolis as part of the Train & Trail Tour ride hosted by the Bicycle Alliance of Minnesota.
The riders will travel north on the Northstar Commuter Rail Line at 11:30 a.m. and arrive in Bike Lake roughly an hour later. To return, they will pedal 41 miles (downhill) by bike on the Mississippi River Trail, Minnesota’s original state bikeway.
The Northstar Commuter Rail Line has many bicycle connections to enjoy any day of the year. View boarding information, nearby parks and recommended bike routes here.
