Turn by Turn instructions with printed cue sheets and Ride with GPS voice prompts.
Our tour routes were carefully planned and ridden by HBC members to make it the best tour yet! Turns will be marked with chalk, where permitted, on the roadway and there will be a limited number of signs along the route. Separate maps and Turn by Turn directions will be provided. We highly recommend using Ride with GPS links that allow you to use Android and iOS phones for turn by turn audible directions.
20 mile route
We are planning a new 20 mile route. Details will be available as soon as we have an opportunity to test ride it.
29 mile route
This is our classic Tour D'Amico route with two nearly equal legs. There are Quick Stops in the middle of each leg with the rest stop between each leg. The first leg of the 29 mile Tour is mostly flat except for the stretch on Hunter Drive that has a few moderate hills. That will make the rest stop at D'Amico & Sons in Wayzata all the more enjoyable. After refreshing yourself a slightly shorter and less hilly second leg will take you back to D'Amico & Sons in Golden Valley where a wonderful lunch awaits you. This ride is suitable for riders of all ability levels. Most riders should complete this tour in about 3 to 4 hours. Full SAG support.
44 mile route
2018 will bring a new Tour D'Amico route without a stop in Edina because of new construction on 49 1/2 Street. There will be stops at Plymouth Station and The Hopkins Depot. We are awaiting the arrival of bicycling weather to finalize the route.
Full SAG support.

Metric Century - 62 mile
Our longest route will skip the Rest stop in Edina because of construction. This mostly new route is rolling with few more hills offering a more challenging tour and is primarily for intermediate and endurance riders because of its length. This is a long ride so be prepared to start early and arrive back to Golden Valley in time for lunch. Full SAG support.
