The 2015 Tour of Lakes will begin and end at Crow Wing County Fair Grounds, 2000 13th Street SE, Brainerd, MN 56401. In keeping with past tradition, we have again modified the routes to change the scenery. This year we will offer route choices of approximately 35 and 70 miles. All riders will start between 6:00 and 8:00 a.m.


The Tour of Lakes Bicycle Ride is a recreational ride for cyclists of all abilities and is not a race. T-shirts will be

handed out at check-in from 6 a.m. to 8 a.m.


We are greatly concerned about the safety of our participants. All riders must obey the rules of the road,

watching out for others as well as themselves. Our tour is entirely on public roads, and we must cooperate with

other users. We require the use of an ANSI approved helmet by all entrants.


There will be one rest stop on the 35 mile route. There will be three rest stops on the 70 mile route. There will be a picnic lunch at the end of the ride.

We are known for the quality, variety and quantity of food at our rest stops. Plan to be pleasantly surprised.

Both routes will be monitored by support vehicles to aid in emergency situations and to help those with

mechanical problems. Due to the large number of Tour of Lakes riders, priority will go to those with serious

problems. Riders and their equipment are expected to be in good condition. As on all other rides, cyclists should

carry tools, pump, and a spare tube. Route support will end at 3:30 p.m.


Bikes pulling trailers will be considered as one unit and will receive 1 shirt. Riders under the age of 16 must be

accompanied by an adult.
