    Twin Cities C&V ride - Date Revised - Now on for June 27th - (L'Utefisk)

    - Date change- now on for June 27'th

    Please ref this thread going forward. Thanks for playing along with my lack of calendar reading skills


    The honorable Gomango and I are preparing a Twin Cities C&V ride on Saturday June 13th.

    This is an inclusive event (routes designed for all levels of participants), taking routes between White Bear Lake and Stillwater.

    Routes will be as short as 35 miles of mainly well maintained paths (easier), to as long as 60 miles of bluffs and lakes (moderate, not difficult). Mix and match options to suit your enthusiasm. Cue sheets will cover all routes, but likely we will ride as a couple groups.

    This is a no sag, "self supported" ride, with many food and beverage options along the way (we will suggest the stops and meet up points). Not a competition, instead a chance to show off your hardware and mix with oddballs that your significant other doesn't understand.

    Leaving from WBL and heading to Stillwater as the rest stop (lunch somewhere TBD downtown), then back along a different route for post ride libations along the shores of beautiful WBL.

    So.... Who's interested?

    Expected sites along the way

    Hopefully the date change makes some of the possibles into probables.

    I rode the long course yesterday afternoon to make sure it all ties together nicely. Should be a good one. Long routes combine to about 60 miles with less than 3K of elevation.

    Please use this thread to indicate in's and out's. Closer to the date we'll get a role call so we don't leave without anyone who's a for sure...

    Update two: No actual Lutefisk will be served. Those wishing to have Lutefisk are asked to supply their own dry plank whitefish, lye, and vat. It is strongly suggested to arrive several weeks early so as to prepare said ingredients down to non-toxic levels. If this describes you, please bring your own sleeping bag and toothbrush. You should also be prepared to fend off advances from multiple Norwegian grandmothers over this period.

    Count me in as a definite maybe. Sounds like fun and I might just make the drive up from Des Moines.

    I'm not too sure about the lutefisk though unless you're having it with aquavit in which case pretty much anything is tolerable,

    Sounds like fun. I am a probable but will need to confirm as the date gets closer. It will take me until then to figure out which C&V bike to ride.

    I'd like to think I can come, but kinda doubt it. I'll share this with another forum where I know some people in the area.

    Well, looks like I'd better get my bike's motor tuned up. I'll do everything I can to be there - it's on my calendar.

    It will be nice to meet everyone.

    I'm definitely in as well.

    Even if I have to set aside the mtb for a day.

    Is it possible to eat lutefisk without Aquavit? I don't see that mentioned.

    Nope.

    I grew up with lutefisk. I won't go near it anymore.

    I'd have to be several shots into a bottle of Linie to even think of eating that slimy sh... er, stuff. And yes, I was exposed to it in my Norske rooted youth. Never made any sense to me.

    Lutefisk . . . I'd rather ride an undersized carbon bike with Sora shifters than eat lutefisk.

    Now, lefse - that's a different story.

    It would be cool to go to this and put some faces to names.

    The aquavit is a heck of a lot better without the lutefisk . . . .

    If I can make it, I'll supply the aquavit:



    Side note, next time you're in Duluth, highly recommended checking out Vikre. Great gin, even better hand made drinks at their bar. They're located in Canal Park just before you cross the lift bridge.

    What is considered C&V for this ride? I have a 89 Raleigh Technium but it has STI shifters. I could bring the Kabuki Submariner with DT shifters but everyone would need sunglasses - it is so shiny!

    Don't worry about the bike you bring.

    Just show up.

    Out of towners, if you need a bike I am certain we can set you up with something you might like to ride.

    We have a few spares.

    I am pretty certain I can make it. It sounds pretty mellow: just old bikes and riding. I don't need no stinkin tweed ride! Where and when will it actually start? I am in Mpls and can ride up to WBL for the start.
