Celebrating the Saint Paul Grand Round Starting at Lake Como

Saint Paul Classic Bike Tour 2022

Celebrate Saint Paul Parks Sesquicentennial!

As always Classic riders enjoy the scenic and historic Saint Paul Grand Round. This year marks the 150th year anniversary of visionary landscape architect Horace Cleveland coming to Saint Paul and addressing the Common Council and local business community. He called for preserving parks at Lake Como and Lake Phalen and connecting them with a parkway now known as Wheelock Parkway. His bigger vision for a parkway circling the city was also realized and we’ll be enjoying the beautiful off-road trails and protected bikeways that have been built.

NEW FOR 2022To help keep trails safe and rest stop lines short we’re now offering two check-in times (7:30am-8:30am and 8:30am-9:30am). Please help us keep the Classic fun and safe for all by respecting your start times.

We’re also going over the river and through the woods this year to visit a hidden gem — Lilydale Regional Park. You’ll love the stylish new rest stop overlooking Pickerel Lake where live music and tasty refreshments will greet you. The route follows the Mississippi River to Harriet Island before crossing back over the river for a brief look at downtown Saint Paul. Riders reconnect with the Sam Morgan Trail and continue on to Indian Mounds Park.

LIMITED EDITION — To help ensure rider safety and enjoyment we are limiting the Classic to just 2450 riders. Registration link will be at the top of this screen when available.

Like last year, the Classic will not include closing most streets to automobile traffic.
