The NightOwl Classic is a non-competitive bike ride along the Mississippi River at dusk. The ride will start and finish at historic St. Anthony Main and tour some of the Twin Cities’ most well known landmarks along the river, all with the back drop of the twinkling skyline.
Three ride flights are offered with two start times:
A 3.5 mile "Mini-Hoot" at 7:00 pm
An 8.5-mile "Family Flight" at 7:30pm - – we encourage children, families and less experienced riders to take the 8.5 mile ride.
A 16.5-mile “Hoot Loop” at 7:30pm - – a longer rider for more experienced and city curious riders.
The parkways will be closed for riders, with the entire course re-opening to traffic at 10:00pm.
