Not to be confused with the Tour de Minneapolis the Minneapolis Bike Tour will take place this Sunday September 18 through the city of Minneapolis. Also different from “Tour de” the “Bike Tour” will feature closed down boulevards for your cycling pleasure.
The event starts and finishes at Parade Field (just west of the Sculpture Garden). 400 Kenwood Parkway Minneapolis, MN 55403, and they say there is plenty of parking at Dunwoody, but you should really be riding there anyway. The awesome graphic you see on the upper left was designed by 2&21 and they did a fantastic job as always (check out the Minneapolis cycling infographic).
Riders can start the course in waves from 7:30am-8:30am. Event ends at 2:30pm. The beer garden, yep you read that right, beer garden is open from 10am until 2:30pm, with last call at 2:15pm. All ages are welcome into the garden, but participants who would like a drink must have their ID checked, and be wearing a wristband.
