Join us for a bike ride through some of the most scenic and historic areas of St. Paul and Minneapolis. Vintage (1880s-1930s) fashions are encouraged but not required.

The ride will kick off at James J. Hill House with bike marshals from Farmstead Bike Shop, our program partner. Participants can gather for lawn games and refreshments anytime starting at 10 am, and the ride will commence at 11 am. (For those who aren't biking or would like to stick around longer, the lawn party at James J. Hill House lasts until 1 pm). 

The full route is around 12 miles and will proceed at a leisurely pace, with stops along the way. Highlights include:

  • Summit Avenue, one of the best-preserved stretches of Victorian mansions in the country.
  • The route will cross the Mississippi River Gorge at Marshall Ave, then take a scenic loop across the Northern Pacific Bridge #9 and back again over the iconic 1883 Stone Arch Bridge. 
  • The ride will then stop for a break at the Mill City Museum, where participants can grab a bite to eat, check out the Mill City Farmer's Market, or explore historic mill ruins. 
  • The ride will then conclude outside of the Hennepin History Museumand nearby Washburn Fair Oaks Park.

This event is free and open to all. Admission to James J. Hill House, Mill City Museum, and Hennepin History Museum not included. Please register here.

The event is made possible by the generous help from following program partners: Farmstead Bike Shop, Hennepin History Museum, and Mill City Museum. Special thanks to Cafe Latte, for donating a portion of event refreshments.
