The fifth annual RIDE THE RIDGES, set for September 16, 2017, will take riders through some of the most scenic areas in Southeastern Minnesota – from lush valleys along streams to bluffs overlooking the Mississippi River. Choose one of four routes. Each has hills and valleys – and spectacular views.  All routes have rest stops and SAG support.
