The beautiful scenery and the challenging hills make this event one to remember.

 

The century ride was beautiful from start to finish! The scenery and views are truly spectacular!

 

 

The ride is beautiful and scenic with long flats and some rolling hills. But what makes this event stand out are the wonderful volunteers along the way. They all had smiles on and each one offered us enthusiastic encouragement. The warm and tasty coffee from Mugby Junction made the event all the more welcoming and memorable.

 

Great ride support.  Will do it again.  Hopefully without the rain.

 

 

Even in the rain, the camaraderie of participants and volunteers was excellent. I would ride definitely ride again.

Shower after and a vegan option food truck...what could be better.

 

  

Great ride, VOLUNTEERS OUTSTANDING!!! Lunch after ride OUTSTANDING.

 

I have done multiple century rides and the spacing, food quality and staffing of the rest stops is the best I've seen. Thank you!

 

Ride The Ridges is as good as it gets when it comes to bike tours. It offers great scenery, safe roads, superb organization, wonderful volunteers, excellent rest stops, mechanical support and a choice of distances.......everything a cyclist could ask for.

 

I have participated in many century rides around Minnesota, Wisconsin and Iowa. This was my first time doing the "Ride The Rides" century and it was a treat! It was challenging, beautiful, fun, great volunteers and in the top 3 of all the century's I have completed. If you want an awesome ride come to Winona!

 

Very organized ride, great scenery.

 

Beautiful ride, excellent signs to follow and very helpful people before, during and after the event. Inviting friends to join me for the 2018 ride.  Want them to experience Ride The Ridges.

 

This was my first organized cycle event being from out of town l was a little nervous but i met some awesome volunteers and local folks that made it a great experience well done.  See you next year.

 

The premier bike tour is SE Minnesota.  Beautifully tough!!

 

The most scenic and friendly ride on two wheels.

 

Best organized ride that I did this season.  Very scenic and somewhat difficult route.  Just the kind of ride that I want to usher in the end of an awesome road biking season. Thank You All....

 

You have to do this if you enjoy biking. Great roads, great event!

 

The views are beautiful. The ride this year was amidst a soft rain and perfect temperatures. There was a food truck after the event offering a variety of tasty food. The showers were a wonderful bonus!

 

I really enjoyed the warm hospitality of the homeowners and Rotary volunteers at the rest stops on private homes and farms. That was a unique/fun experience compared to other organized rides I've done.

 

This is my third time Riding the Ridges. The route is my favorite among sponsored rides. The signage is always clear and the support along the way is wonderful. Will definitely do it again.

 

The volunteers at the rest stops were so hospitable and friendly!  Enjoyed the food from the local communities!

 

Thank you for supporting bicycling and your community. You did a wonderful job. And oh, those donuts, right on :-)

Beautiful route, superbly supported!

 

Beautiful ride, fabulous scenery, awesome views!!

 

Ride the Ridges had the best rest stops and volunteers. The food selection was excellent. The volunteers were extremely friendly. I also loved the HAM operators supporting the ride.

 

A beautiful route, we will be back in 2018!

 

My husband and I have done this ride several times and we love it. The volunteers do a great job, the signage is excellent, and the rest stops are AWESOME!
