The Tour Of Minnesota
Formerly The Klobuchar Ride

Jim Klobuchar, an adventure/travel writer for the StarTribune, honorably led 39 bike tours around the beautiful state of Minnesota from 1974-2013 as the Klobuchar Ride.

In 2014, Jim asked me to take over the ride and we rechristened it the "Tour of Minnesota Formerly the Klobuchar Ride" but we still travel to all of the beautiful sights of Minnesota and surrounding areas.​​ I have been around this ride all my life and am honored to have the chance to lead it. This group of people is amazing, I call them family. We are a community

Bike Minnesota - Iowa Bike Expo

On January 27th, 2018 I will be partnering up with two other bike tour providers to create the Bike Minnesota Booth for the Iowa Bike Expo in Des Moine, Iowa. We will promote biking in Minnesota featuring rides with Bike Tour Vacations, Wahoo Adventures and the Tour of Minnesota. We offer a variety of rides in Minnesota that I think will be both enjoyable and envigarting. We hope to see you at the Expo.
