The Mankato Bike & Walk Advocates and the Bicycle Alliance of Minnesota invite you to join us for the annual Mankato River Ramble. The Ramble offers some of the best bicycling Minnesota has to offer.

For a city so close - just 77 scenic miles from the Twin Cities - Mankato may be Minnesota's best kept bicycling secret! And Greater Mankato has been named a Bronze Level Bicycle Friendly Community by the League of American Bicyclists. Visit Mankato and North Mankato to discover great cities where bicycling is big!

The landscape will be dressed in peak fall colors. Try one of four scenic tours ranging from 12 to 58 miles. You’ll pass charming waterfalls, epic river valleys and bountiful farmland at the easy pace of a bicycle.

Don’t miss the award-winning pie, world renown raspberry bars, invigorating fresh fruit, and all of the other treats, attractions, and amenities while on the River Ramble. Plus, all of this great entertainment is family friendly - kiddos and teens up to age 17 ride for free!

We promise you’ll fall for Mankato!

This splendid morning ride is geared toward families but fun for bike clubs too. Choose from lovely bicycle routes featuring great rest stops, delicious treats, and live music. Rest Stops are spaced evenly throughout the course to provide beautiful views, tasty treats, live music, and more. In case of a bump in the road, the Mankato River Ramble offers full ride, SAG, and mechanical support all day.

Helmets are required: Protect your melon! Safe cycling to all Mankato River Ramble riders!
