Tour of Saints – What Riders Love

It’s not a race. It’s a heavenly little ride.

What Riders Love about the Tour of Saints

A Annual Mid July Tradition!

The Tour of Saints attracts cyclists from cities and towns across Minnesota, and even from bordering states. Here’s why our riders make the annual pilgrimage, said in their own words:

What a great ride – everything was super organized and super rider-friendly! Thanks for all your work.”

“It was our first Tour of Saints and we loved it! The route was very nice and avoided traffic quite satisfactorily. The hills weren’t too bad and of course, the weather was perfect. The food was good – especially the donuts and cookies. Keep up the good work!”

“This was a great ride! Everyone should be commended – we as riders lack for nothing – I can’t wait for next year – maybe I will try the 50 miles! Thanks!”

“This is my favorite tour – thank you for all the hard work and coordination! It’s great! Keep up the tradition! Small suggestion – mark miles to rest stops along the route – no big deal – but gives people an idea of where they are.”

“Well organized. Rest stops phenomenal!! Keep on…thank you!!”

“Generally the best organized event I’ve been in.”

“Excellent food. Rest stops are about perfectly spaced.”

“Great ride – like the fact you don’t have to decide to do the 50 until the end.”

“Great time! So well organized. Really appreciated the overnight at St. Ben’s. First time on this trip.”

“I really appreciate all the fruit and juices out at the rest stops. And the “rescue cars” were great! Although I didn’t quite need it, it was nice to know they were there.”

“I can’t find anything to improve – this works so very well – helpful and friendly volunteers, great and ample food and drink, consistently high quality shirts, excellent facilities.”

“Wonderful stops at a nice distance from each other. Helpful staff, and course was well-marked.”

“Thank you for yet another beautiful, well-organized, delightful event! My hat goes off to all involved – yea to planning crew! This was Tour #4 for me – I will be back for many more!”

“Thank you very much. The volunteers were very friendly, helpful and organized. This was my first bike tour of any sort, and I enjoyed it a lot!”

“Great route, great fun! I have never met so many nice people. I’ll be back.” – Greg Toutges, Moorhead

“It was just wonderful. Great training ride for TRAM. Your ride was so well-organized. Will do it again next year.”

“It was a great ride — the volunteers along the way were fantastic! We will come back next year. Thanks!”

“Great ride — lots of challenges along the way. This was my first tour — wow, what a workout. Thank you!”

“Once again the tour was well-organized and a pleasure to ride. Thanks to all the volunteers who make this ride so enjoyable.”

“Excellent job — very well organized. Well marked – very safe! Great job!”

“The people and the food at the stops were great! Thank you, thank you, thank you! See you next year!”

“This was the first time I did a long distance bike ride. The day was wonderful, organization excellent. Rest stops, snacks were good and added to enthusiasm to bike. Thanks a lot for organizing this wonderful event.”

“Good ride, good route, good rest stops. Great being able to stay at dorm overnight. Keep on doing the ride.”

“My first ride ever. What a great experience. I’m glad I made this one my first. Very organized. Thanks.”

“This is a wonderful ride — always return to Minnesota this time of year just for this ride. Great organization – Thanks.”

“My first Saints ride! We drove 4-1/2 hours to get here and it was worth it. Good roads, great rest stops, timed just right.”

“This was the first time I’ve done the ride and it was fabulous.”

“The hills were tough but very rewarding! Thanks for the truly heavenly ride!”

“Loved the route again! I’ve ridden this many, many times, and each time they’re better. Scenery, food, people, route — all well done. Saw sags several times, so people were aware it was well supported. Thank you very much.”
