             APPLE BLOSSOM TOUR
                                                       Saturday August 11, 2018
 

Enjoy the surprises folded in the majestic Mississippi River Valley and Historic Bluff Country.  Glimpse what the first westbound settlers must have encountered as you wind along the Mississippi River, once designated as the western edge of the United States.

 

Join us Saturday, August 11, 2018 for one of the following rides of the Sixth Annual Apple Blossom Tour. 


The 30 mile, 52 mile and 59 mile tours will have you bicycling along the bluff top overlooking the Mississippi River.  The challenging rolling hills and curving valleys are some of the best bicycling in the state.  This year the rides will start and end at Abnet Field, Near the La Crescent Community Ice Arena.


If the challenging bluffs are not for you, the 16 mile ride to the north of La Crescent will be more to your liking.  Also starting Abnet Field, this route is a beautiful river view along the Mississippi River Trail



In the mid 1800’s, Minnesota was no place to grow an apple.  It was just too cold.  John S. Harris developed a strain of apple trees that could withstand the harsh winters.  His pioneering efforts brought native apples to Minnesota and helped to make La Crescent the “Apple Capital of Minnesota.”  Come see what all the fuss is about…
