Ride Description

On Friday leaving from Northwest Rochester we will take the Douglas State Trail to Pine Island and then head West along the Zumbro River to Berne, Concord, West Concord, to Rice Lake State Park (9 miles East of Owatonna) all on pavement. We will camp in the group camp for 2 nights. On Saturday we will take a day trip possibly to Medford, the Sakatah State Trail and Faribault, mostly on pavement. On Sunday we will return from Rice Lake to Rochester via a shorter route, through Wasioja, Danesville, Genoa and Douglas, and back to the start on the Douglas Trail, again all on pavement. Camping fees will be a free will offering to the guide who purchased the group camp rental; we do not want camping cost to be a barrier to participation.
