Summer Solstice Celebration

Saturday, June 22nd

Hosts: Jill and Scott Apple

Join us for a fun train and bike combination ride that we have experienced several times. We’ll rendezvous streetside at the Surly headquarters on Malcomb Avenue SE and plan to depart at 10:30am Saturday, June 22nd. We’ll bike to the Northstar Train depot at Target Field, purchase $5.50 one-way fares, roll our tandems aboard, and take the 11:30am one-way to Big Lake. The train arrives in Big Lake at 12:30pm. Our route will then take us south across the Mississippi through Monticello, then follow the contour of the river through Otsego and Dayton to our lunch stop at QFanatic in Champlin. It’s easy to then hop on the West River Road trail system and wind our way back to Minneapolis. Enjoying a Surly beer at the end of the ride is a fun way to celebrate your 55 mile accomplishment.

The threat of significant rain will prompt us to postpone this ride, so please make certain you email Scott at This email address is being protected from spambots.
