May 14: Frozen Custard Ride
Hosts: Mike Lindgren and Terri Backes
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 14th. 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 may have Honey Custard and Rhubarb Custard available by then. The route options out are 11 or 16 miles. The route options back are 8, 10, or 16 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.
Please RSVP if you plan on coming.
The home is located north of Cumberland at 2524 4th St (County Rd H).

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: email@example.com . 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.
