Riders will depart out of Eagan from the Blue Cross Blue Shield campus. The route will take riders south and east through Apple Valley, Rosemount, Farmington and Hampton. It will then connect with the beautiful Cannon Valley Trail out of Cannon Falls and head due east. The trail ends near Welch, MN where the route will veer south and west passing through the small communities of Vasa, Belle Creek, Dennison, and Nerstrand, MN. Riders will continue west until they reach Cannon City. This is where the route changes and heads north into Northfield and St. Olaf College where the 100 mile ride will finish and the 180 mile Riders will stay overnight. Safe to say the route will appeal to cyclists of all abilities!
