No guidebook covering roads to ride in Minnesota would be complete without this classic ride. Leaving from a park created from the backwaters of the Mississippi River, the route begins with a tour through Winona to warm up your leg muscles. Passing St. Mary’s, you will gradually start to climb up the magnificent river bluffs for an experience you won’t soon forget. At the top take a look over your shoulder before running the ridges to La Crescent. Returning, travel up the Hiawatha Apple Blossom Scenic Drive and soon you will be coasting down past the Historic Pickwick Mill. The Great River Road, a scenic byway, brings you back to the park, just below the bluffs.
