The Mankato River Ramble embraces the best of both bicycling worlds — off-road paved trails and quiet country roads. Riders can choose a scenic route of 12, 26 or 42  miles. The 12-mile Minneopa Falls Loop will visit the beautiful state park. The 26-mile “Pie Run” takes riders over the river and through the woods to reach the Rapidan Dam Rest Stop where you find an array of award winning pies. Riders seeking a greater challenge will love the 42-mile Lake Crystal Loop that visits the handsome towns of Rapidan, Lake Crystal and Judson.
