The route starts in Preston, MN where Hwy 52 and MN-16 run together. Follow MN-16 through Lanesboro to Rushford, MN, where MN-16 joins MN-43.

Scenery

This route closely follows the twisty Root River through some beautiful bluff country.

This route has a few hills, lots of long, sweeping corners and some slightly tighter twists and turns. The pavement is in good shape for the majority of the route, with a few areas in fair shape.

Tourism Opportunities

Along this route you will find gas stations at either end, campgrounds in Lanesboro & near Preston and Rushford, Amish tours, and mini-golf. Nice stops along the way are the Lanesboro Dam, Inspiration Point, and Peterson Wayside Park.

Hwy 16 in MN is an excellent ride. And this section between Rushford and Lanesboro is the best part of it. Not technical, just lazy curves on smooth tarmac.
Check out IronHorse Outfitters when you are in Lanseboro for riding gear, clothing and even lodging.

Great ride in the bluff country. Lansboro and Whalen are two little town that are worth a look.

This was a very rewarding ride. The scenery is beautiful. The road is in excellent condition. The route was never boring, varying from tight, technical sections to long sweeping curves, with long straights. It was peaceful on a weekend day with little traffic.
