Okay, this should be fun! It has a couple roads I've never used, a trail I didn't know was there, some Halloween decorations, nice scenery and a couple rest stops. Leave from Oakdale Nature Preserve and work our way out to Pine Point Park. Still south wind predicted so should help with a couple of the hills on Norell. It uses the Gateway Trail and Browns Creek in small segments so if you’re pretty tired of the Gateway Trail, you’ll hardly notice since we’re on/off it fairly quickly. I checked out a couple sections of the route and have posted it. It’s mostly nice roads with good shoulders and maybe a couple trails and neighborhood roads. There are a couple not-too-big hills, but mostly rolling Washington County terrain.

There are rest stops possible at the KwikTrip on Manning/75th at about 10 miles and at Pine Point Park at about 18 miles. Bring a snack and water in case we decide not to stop at the KwikTrip, but definitely an option if you’d like.

B/C pace so we’ll probably end up averaging between 12-13 mph at the end.  

Restrooms and water available at the start at the Discovery Center and KwikTrip (optional stop) and portable toilets at Pine Point Park. Not sure if bathrooms still open there.

Thanks for pre-registering and please check the Ride Calendar or Ride Cancellations on the Forum just in case the weather turns ugly. Don’t hesitate to call or text me at 612.381.6711 if any questions prior to heading to the ride start.
