The Great Northern River Ride
The Great Northern River Tour will take you on a fun and adventure filled tour from Minneapolis, Minnesota to St. Charles, Missouri in 9 days. Once you depart Minneapolis the riding gets rural. You'll find the people friendly as you pass through small town America.
From Hastings you'll follow the National River Road all the way to Red Wing, a quaint river town made famous for its shoes and pottery. You'll soon notice the many Locks on the river. Stop and learn the need for them and their history. The scenery is fantastic from on top of the bluffs.
Continuing on the River Road you'll cycle through Wisconsin and into Illinois. And then you'll roll into the historic town of Hannibal, Missouri. Tour the town and see the Hannibal that inspired Mark Twain's Tom Sawyer.
The tour ends in St. Charles, Missouri, just a stones throw from St. Louis. Take a day to tour downtown St. Louis and visit the Gateway Arch.
