Brief Description

The Minnesota Ironman Bicycle Ride, organized by Hostelling International - Minnesota, is a one-day recreational bike ride held on Sunday, May 6, 2012. We offer routes of 17, 30, 68 or 100 miles to accommodate all riders. We annually attract 5,000 riders of all ages and abilities; those new to riding, seasoned veterans and families. Well organized, great routes, variety of food and snacks and friendly volunteers have built our 45 year reputation.

The Minnesota Gran Fondo is back for 2012. In honor of our 46th year we wish to celebrate our long history by offering an exciting event for the serious Ironman cyclist. Based on rides in Italy, it will be a timed recreational ride. The Gran Fondo offers a start/finish line, on-line results based on age categories. Registration fees include a Grand Fondo Tech t-shirt. Riders can sign up for the 100 mile ride or the 50 mile ride. Riders share the roads with vehicles and with bicyclists riding the traditional Minnesota Ironman Bike Ride.
