Reader's Route: Jeff Frane and the Country Style 50 Mile


Today's Reader's Route comes from Jeff Frane. The Country Style 50 Mile takes you on a tour through the River Bottoms area in the Twin Cities. For a rowdy mixed surface adventure, check out this reader submitted route.

Submission from Jeff Frane:


Come tour the fabulous River Bottoms. Gravel, pavement, bike path, two track and single track.


Any off road bike will work great, and none are a bad choice, gravel bike, mountain bike, or fat bike will all work great for this course. I'd recommend at least a 38c tire with a 42c being about optimal. This is also a great chance to put some big miles on a vintage MTB if you're into that sort of thing.


Expect to be out there about five hours and there is a gas station at mile 30 and several bars / restaurants at mile 40 in Mendota. Bring snacks!
