May 10: Frozen Custard Ride

Mike Lindgren and Terri Backes are going to lead a tandem ride out of our lake home just north of Cumberland WI on Saturday, May 10th.  We plan on starting at 11am.   
Our stop will be at the 20 Mile Organic General Store, in the town of Barronett, for some frozen custard.  One of their specialties is Salted Caramel Cashew Praline.  (They also have some great sticky buns.)  The route options out are 11 or 15.5 miles.  The route options back are 8.5, 10.5, or 16.5 miles.  The ride is on rolling terrain with minimal traffic.
Post ride snacks will be available. You’re welcome to use our showers to clean up before heading home.

May 18: Tony and Bean's Anniversary Ride

Meet at Tonka Cycle and Ski, 16 Shady Oak Road S, Minnetonka, MN  55343

Time – Meet 11:30 Ride Time 12:00. 

WOW… That is all I have to say.  This year we are celebrating our 10 YEAR ANNIVERSARY.  Time just flies!!  Thank you for helping us celebrate another bliss filled year! We can truly say that each year gets better and better!  Next year’s Anniversary Ride we will hopefully be changing it up to Tony’s Retirement Ride! 

While our Anniversary Ride has often been plagued with bad weather, I am positive that after the winter we had this year’s ride is going to be BEAUTIFUL.    Come join us for a casual ride of 25 – 30 miles on some of our favorite roads in Minnetonka with the highlight being the Cottagewood General Store.  Minnetonka offers gently rolling terrain with great neighborhoods and the mighty lake!  Feel free to contact us tonyandbean@yahoo.com or (612)201-5545. 

Hope to see you out on a ride soon!

On Saturday, August 16, 2014, John and Helen Mattsen will host the first ever TCTC ride to the Forest Lake Airport to attend their “13th Annual Open House and Fly-In” event. See the great photos at http://www.forestlakeairport.org/ . The photos pretty much tell the story. Planes everywhere (including planes taking off and landing right next to the event on the ground). Collector cars. Pretty good food at a pretty reasonable price. vendors. A very nice, professional grade jazz band was playing there last year. And everything but the food is FREE!  After an 8:45 AM briefing we will depart at 9:00 AM and ride together to the start point two miles away. From this start point, there are only four easy turns to make over the remaining nineteen miles to the airport, so everyone can ride at their own pace and feel free to look around, without the fear of getting lost. The route is very flat! We’ve only driven it in a car so far, but the mileage appears to be 19 out and of course, 19 back. We will have some snacks available prior to the ride. Feel free to show up by 8:00 AM. Contact John and Helen Mattsen by Friday evening at 651-631-1131 (Home) or 651-895-0550 Cell. E-mail mattsen2@comcast.net.
