MN Spring Ride XIII Redux
IMPORTANT CHANGE Saturday, August 1st
Please note the earlier muster time.

8:45 AM
Muster at Coborn's Express in Belle Plaine

9:15 - 10:20
Segment 1 - Belle Plaine to Mankato (45.3 miles, 1:05)
202376


10:50 - 11:40
Segment 2 - Mankato to New Ulm (33.4 miles, 0:51)
202377


11:40 - 1:10
Lunch at Veigel's Kaiserhoff
Per the Governor's latest executive order, we'll each need a face covering to move around in the restaurant. We can remove them after we're seated. They have a large dining room to accommodate us.

1:10 - 2:25
Segment 3 - New Ulm to St Peter (61.7 miles, 1:14)
202378


2:55 - 4:05
Segment 4 - St Peter to Waconia (54.9 miles, 1:10)
202379

MNDOT is showing Hwy 93 south of Henderson as still closed due to last weekend's flooding, so we'll most likely be taking 169 from Le Sueur to Henderson.

4:35 - 5:55
Segment 5 - Waconia to End (35.9 miles, 1:20)
202380


We'll finish with the traditional barbecue.

It's going to be warm. Bring water.

It might be wet in the afternoon. Bring your rain gear!

With regrets, I will not be able to make this one. I was looking forward to some local riding with you all too. The family and I will be in the Black Hills for some adventure and seeing my parents (they're in WY so western SD is a good place to meet).

Kaiserhoff has some good ribs. There's also the MNeis ice cream shop that just opened. Fantastic ice cream, would be a great stop if looking for a treat.

My ankle's still a bit tender, but I'll be around if you want to stop by for a break or ride together a bit.
It would be good to stop to see you, Joe. I try to follow the Ride day itinerary on the preview, but we won't need the whole 1.5 hours I've allowed for the lunch stop. Are you in town?

If you've never done the pre-ride, they are every bit as good as the ride.
My little CX custom is ready to go.

Yes I'm in town, only a few blocks from the Kaiserhof. I'll send you a message with details.

Good ride today.
I intend to change the muster location by a couple blocks, and I might rewrite part of the afternoon. Once you get away from the river, it's kind of flat and boring. Well, except for the severe thunderstorms. But those are hard to schedule, so I can't promise that kind of excitement.
Thanks to Thumper for coming along today, and to TheValk for joining us for lunch and a bit of the ride. I'm glad you made it home before the worst of the rain.

Randall

I am currently dealing with 12 doctors. If I feel well enough I will be there, but I am not sure.

One of our Early Election Deputies tested positive for Covid on Friday. Took out 2 or 3 other Judges that were in close contact with her (quarantine for 2 weeks.) The measure was "Were you within 6 feet of her for over 15 minutes?" I was not, but I got tested today at CVS in Edina. I'll be working overtime to fill the gap.
Won't know if I can get away on Saturday. I'll do my best to make the BBQ.
