In the center of farm country, built on the banks of two lakes, you will find the town of Willmar. With historical influence from the early rail lines, the cruise circles the area’s rolling topography and allows you to ride on parts of the Glacial Ridge Trail Scenic Byway. Leaving from Rice Park and crossing the switching yard of the Burlington Northern & Santa Fe Railroad, the route passes the Kandiyohi Fairgrounds and starts undulating beneath you as you ride north. Passing sparkling lakes and contoured farmland, you will visit a state park named after Minnesota’s first governor; ride past an apple orchard; then pivoting south, pass a couple more wildlife areas as you cycle the glacial ridges back to a town built on the banks of two lakes.
