Rock-n-Roll the Lakes – Albert Lea
August 10, 2024

Come down to cruise around the beautiful lakes of Albert Lea, Minnesota

Saturday August 10, 2024

Why Albert Lea Rocks!

As the hometown of rock-n-roll icon, Eddie Cochran, as well as Marion Ross, (also known as Mrs. C from Happy Days), Albert Lea knows how to rock! You’re likely to spot one of the many eagles, pelicans, and countless other birds and wildlife that live in the area and love the local lakes. Food stops along the route keep you rollin’. So come along with us for a fun, family-friendly ride, great tunes, and a rockin’ good time!

Who puts this event on?

RnRTL is brought to you by the good folks at BikeMN Chapter Albert Lea Area Cyclists (ALAC) and the Bicycle Alliance of Minnesota. ALAC is a bicycle and pedestrian education and advocacy group for Albert Lea, Minnesota who were instrumental in helping Albert Lea become an official Bicycle Friendly Community, and continue to refine the Rock-n-Roll the Lakes ride. Stay up to date with ALAC them by following them on Facebook. Thanks to our sponsors below too!
