This ride tours around a long, north-south chain of lakes. This string of eighteen lakes made from a deeply eroded valley before the glacial deposits filled them in, offers visitors today many recreational options. The ramble leaves from Sylvania Park, passing the beautiful Martin County courthouse on Lake Sisseton. Here a stockade once stood and protected the residents. After riding south along the eastern shores of this lake chain, travel west to a town named after a box of tea. You’ll then ride north up along the western shores of Lake Sisseton and pass through a town named after an early president of the University of Minnesota.
