Ride Report - September 5

Today, the WR250R and GZ250 finally went for a ride together. We road all the way around the Grand Rounds Scenic Byway. It was a good, leisurely ride which took almost two hours and covered about fifty miles. Theodore Wirth is probably my favorite part with the Mississippi River section a close second. I like TW because for a few miles you are surrounded by dense forest and can forget you're in the middle of the city. The river is also great with parks lining both the Minneapolis and the Saint Paul sides.

The Grand Rounds Scenic Byway was designated a Minnesota State Scenic Byway in 1997 and in 1998 it was designated as a ‘National Scenic Byway’ by the Federal Highway Administration. You can find out more about the history here.
