"A beautiful 30(ish)-mile loop around Saint Paul that gives cyclists a taste of everything it has to offer, from scenic green parkways to residential and urban riding. This route can also easily connect to a number of other rides in the book for additional miles. There will be a mixture of trail and vehicular traffic depending on when you opt for roads or separated bike paths. A substantial portion of the ride travels on painted bike lanes alongside vehicular traffic. As far as Saint Paul is concerned, cycling around the city on the approximately 30-mile Saint Paul Grand Round is a treat any cyclist will love with its mixture of parkways surrounded by green space and city riding. It’s not here merely for balance between the Twin Cities, but because it really is one of the best rides you can get on two wheels in the region. Even better, it fits right in with the connectivity of the region. Linking this ride with the Cedar Lake to Midtown and Hiawatha Ramble or the Minneapolis Grand Round Cruise is a cinch using the Lake Street–Marshall Bridge."
