Join us at 9 AM, Saturday, July 16 for a 24 mile ride from Brindisi’s Pub at Chanhassen Dinner Theatres, 501 W 78th St. Chanhassen, to the Lowry Nature Center in Carver Park. The outbound route includes 5.6 miles on quiet residential streets with hills and turns. Another 8.4 miles on the Lake Minnetonka LRT and Carver Park trails brings us to the Lowry Nature Center. The return route is 9.1 miles on bike trails (including a new trail that borders the MN Landscape Arboretum) and 0.7 miles through downtown Chanhassen. Then gather for lunch at Brindisi’s Pub.
Riders are asked to be ready to ride by 9 AM. The ride will average about 11 mph. Most of the route can be found at https://www.mapmyride.com/routes/view/5069950405/. (The first 2 miles of the ride is missing because neither MapMyRide nor Google Maps recognizes the neighborhood trails.)
Brindisi’s Pub has outdoor and indoor seating. The $6 “Famous Brindisi Burger” is popular and other menu options include vegetarian salads and flatbreads.
