If Grand Rounds sounds boring, put that idea out of your head. If you are interested in heading downtown and checking out the locks at St. Anthony near the iconic Gold Medal Flour sign, and milling ruins, this is for you. If you are interested in biking to a beach on a serene city lake, this is for you.
We rented bikes at Calhoun Bike Rental at James and Lake Street, and in 2 hours headed down to St. Anthony Falls and then back and around Cedar Lake and returned our bikes. It was lovely.
**Bring your own map though! It can get a little confusing since the Grand Rounds connect a bunch of paths so the paths continue where the Grand Rounds routes do not.
This was super fun!!! Our route was awesome and I would recommend it, but we didn't dilly dally so if you want to spend more time I would recommend renting for half a day.
