Minnesota Motorcycle Trips and Events List

Motorcycle riders will find three great regions for motorcycle roads within the North Star State. The North Central/West region is where Midwest parries meet North Woods, home to Minnesota's (MN) largest lakes, and a paradise for outdoor lovers. The Northeast region, sometimes referred to as Arrowhead, is a home to numerous lakes and rapids bearing rivers, and the shores of magnificent Lake Superior. The Southern region shares it's scenery between the Mississippi River valley and the start of prairie land that dominates the Dakota states to the west.




*Map Key: Why do the routes have different colors? The colors are only different so one route can easily be distinguished from another.

4th Annual "Cruisin' for Critters" Motorcycle & Classic Car Run

The time has come!!! The run planning is underway and its going to be a blast!! Once again, this year's run is open to both motorcycles and classic cars! We will be heading out towards Annandale this year and of course, after the run, there will be a meal and the Silent Auction! I hope to see many repeat and new faces this year!! The proceeds from the run and the silent auction are for Central MN Animal Care & Control in Sauk Rapids. I hope to help many animals this year with the run proceeds! The B's (Bullets, Beauties, & the Beasts) yearly run is all about raising money for Central MN Animal Care & Control in Sauk Rapids, MN. This shelter makes a HUGE difference to this community by being the impound facility for the municipalities, helping in cruelty investigations, dealing with hoarding cases, offering pet adoptions, and being a rescue group for many animals from the south and the Indian Reservations! Central MN Animal Care & Control depends on this bike and car run to raise money so they can keep doing what they do! Without donations from people, it would be hard as they do not get offered grants like other places do!
