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