Tomorrow, Sunday September 8 2013 is the annual St. Paul Classic Bike Tour. What a great way to see St. Paul.
What is the classic bike tour?
"The Classic is a showcase for the handsome parks and parkways of beautiful Saint Paul. Hallmarks of the Classic include mostly traffic-free bicycling, ride support, great live music, organic fruit, fresh coffee, bountiful baked goods and of course watermelon at the end! Our rest stops are the best in the business!"
There is registration at the event which starts at St. Thomas University. This event attracts about 6,000 riders and includes the "King of the Hill" race up the Ramsey hill.
I don't race, in fact I generally don't do fast on my bike. There was this one time that I passed someone who was going in the same direction as I was going on the bike path, but it only happened once, and it was some kind of a fluke.
There is a 15 mile course and a 30 and a 45. I will probably do the 30 mile because I am too slow to do the 45 mile and see the race up Ramsey hill.
