Strap on your helmets, and load up your bike racks—Minnetonka’s 16th annual Tour de Tonka returns after being canceled last summer and replaced by the smaller Fall de Tonka ride in the autumn.
The cycling event will kick off on August 7, with most routes opening at 7:30 a.m. and starting at Minnetonka High School. For those opting for the 71-mile route, the path will begin at the Minnetonka Community Education Center. For the 100-mile route, the path will open at 7 a.m. at Clear Springs Elementary School. There will be seven different routes, starting with the family-friendly, 16-mile option and advancing to the 100-mile professional route.
Regardless of which path cyclists choose, Minnetonka Community Education organizers have planned plenty of fun, engaging pitstops for riders to take a break, rehydrate and participate in exciting activities along their routes.
