Jesse James Bike Tour

The Jesse James Bike Tour is held annually on the Saturday after Labor Day. This year’s event begins at the Northfield Middle School at 6:30 a.m. on Saturday, September 11.

The tour consists five scenic routes — 100, 60, 45, 30 and 10 miles – through the lakes region of Rice County, the southern Minnesota towns of Northfield, Nerstrand, Faribault and Lonsdale, and the beautiful rolling hills of Sogn Valley and Big Woods State Park. All routes feature aid stations with refreshments.

Proceeds from the ride are earmarked as a donation to local community projects, including the Mill Towns Trail and Northfield’s Safe Routes to School program.
