Collins Family Cyclefest 2012

Announcing the annual Collins Family Cyclefest 2012! This will be the third Cyclefest, much anticipated after a disappointing ball-dropping omission in 2011 from the ancient tradition began in 2009.

Collins Family Cyclefest 2012 is a friendly bike ride around the neighborhood where we stop and enjoy some refreshments along the way. The ride will be slow-paced, and families are encouraged. If you’re reading this, you’re invited. No need for us to have met before or have anything in common, other than that we’re all riding bikes.

We’ll meet at Cottontail on the Trail, a bronze bunny located at the intersection of Minnehaha Parkway and Portland Avenue.

The ride will begin at 10:30 AM sharp (sorry about naptime) on Saturday, June 30th, 2012. That’s two weeks from now, suckas.

Here’s the 9 mile route.

We’ll start at the bunny and head down Minnehaha Parkway to Minnehaha Falls, where we’ll enjoy some iScream at Sea Salt. From there, we’ll make our way to Fat Lorenzo’s, where we’ll enjoy some tasty gelato. Finally, we’ll continue to Pepito’s, where we’ll end the day with a great burrito.

Of course, you’re welcome to come along and eat or not eat any of the stops, and you’re welcome to peel off from the group at any time if you don’t want to make one of the stops.

Sound good? Cool! See you there!

    My first reaction was “Aw, maybe we can go but not eat?” but then I remembered that Owen’ll be at scout camp that weekend. Sweet! It’ll be Ian, Aaron and myself, provided I can figure out how to get the baby in the burley. Now you know what we’ll be doing for the next two weeks!

    Bummer, we’ll be in Lutsen. Well, being in Lutsen won’t be a bummer, it’s the not being with you part…nevermind. Sorry to miss it!

    NOOO! Not since the epic ride so long ago have we been able to be part of the Collin’s Family Cyclefest. We will be in California this year. In the future, please clear the day with me. I’ll make sure to be very flexible.

    • Gah! Curses! Your kids would have loved this route! There’s an optional additional stop for ice cream at Grand Old Creamery along the way, too! Have fun in Cali soaking up the sun on the beach. It sounds pretty good, but it’s no cyclefest.
