The marshes and forests of central Minnesota's Isanti County form the scenic backdrop for the annual Rum River Classic. Three bicycle tour routes are planned. There are 15- and 25-mile loops in addition to the one described here. At the same time the tours are in progress, criterium lap races are held in Cambridge. The events are regularly scheduled on the third weekend in June in conjunction with the town's Swedish / Heritage Festival. All the roads are in excellent shape, and, with the exception of a 0.5-mile stretch on Highway 47, you may cover the entire route and encounter only a handful of motor vehicles. It's the little things, like songbirds darting from tree to tree, that people appreciate about the central Minnesota countryside, and the speed of a bicycle is perfect for enjoying it all.
