Early Arrivals with Johnny B

Let’s start the MMR fun with a slow-paced bike ride heading south along the river to Lansing, Iowa for some sight-seeing. Then we head back up north to Harmony for a surprise lunch stop. To top it off, we then head to Whalan to the famous Aroma Pie Shoppe for a treat and then back to The Plaza… Feeling Hungry?!

Merrimac Ferry Ride

An OG ride from MMR08, it was an ‘official’ ride for a few years after. Eventually it was dropped due to time constraints. (it’s a long ride) A small band of riders did keep this tradition going though for every single MMR by hitting this run by arriving to MMR a day early.  Flash forward to MMR22 and it would seem more and more are embracing the ‘arrive early’ concept!

Crazy Steph’s Mexican Run

We are going to take a short ride south on some amazing roads through some small towns of Minnesota to our final destination at El Patron – Mexican Restaurant in Winona. This will be a late lunch/early dinner and a chance to get crazy an unwind with some beverages and Mexican food!
