Mosquito Run

June 11-12, 2020 (Sat/Sun)

CANCELED DUE TO COVID-19.  SEE YOU IN 2021

Mosquito Run, a name that can strike fear in the unknowing, is one of most attended rides of the season, for good reason!  Sure, there's bugs, but hey, this is July in Minnesota!  Oddly enough, ridecamp isn't where you'll find the skeeters; they stick to the trails.  The managememen team is top notch and they think of everything!  This ride is very popular for new riders, having a novice both days.  The trails are beatiful with a mix of wild-flower filled prairies and forest.  The potluck offers the best delicious chicken. And, the photos?  Well, they are always a favorite with the backdrop of the pond, thanks to Bob Zimmerman.  This is a ride you do not want to miss!!
