May 15: Tony and Bean's Anniversary Ride

Hosts: Tony Ableson and Jean Hurlbert

I can't believe that another year of Wedded Bliss has gone by!  Tony is officially a retired guy and just spent a month making our tandem ride like new!   Join us for the 13th TCTC Anniversary ride and help us celebrate our 12th Anniversary.  (The first anniversary ride was actually the "Honeymoon Ride!")  This year is an all new ride!  Still in the Western Suburbs and still on some of our favorite roads and bike trails.  It will also include a trip through the Minnesota Landscape Arboretum which should be alive with Spring Splendor.  Afterward join us at one of our favorite neighborhood Pizza/Pasta establishments which just happens to be at our ride start location.  

Ride Mileage is 37 miles.  

Lets ride at 12:00  Sunday May 15th. (We will be there 1/2 hr before ride start.)

June 4: Airport Extravaganza Ride

Hosts: John and Helen Mattsen

On Saturday, June 4, 2016, John and Helen Mattsen will host a ride to a fly-in breakfast at the Anoka County Airport in Blaine. http://www.discoveraviationdays.org/

There will be a briefing at 8:30 AM with a prompt departure from their home at 1859 Mississippi Street in New Brighton. Four miles into the ride we will arrive at the Anoka County Airport for breakfast (Usually pancakes, sausages, and beverages for $7.00 for adults). Of course, purchase of breakfast is not required.

After a couple hours of breakfast and close encounters with a wide variety of aircraft, we will ride a popular route to the east through Sucker Lake Park, and then return to our home for a pot luck meal. Total distance somewhere around 25 miles.
The bridge over Snelling Avenue is back in service so the distance this year will be a little shorter than last year. Perhaps not! It might be the same as last year because they are taking out another bridge on the route.  Please contact us by Friday noon so that we can coordinate the pot luck part of the event. E-mail: mattsen2@comcast.net . Home 651-631-1131. Cell 651-895-0550. Also, please give us your phone number so we can contact you if the ride needs to be cancelled.
