Cannon Falls Road Race
Thursday, June 15
Cannon Falls, located just 35 miles from Saint Paul, is one of Minnesota's favorite tourist destinations. It is the trail head for the Cannon Valley Trail, the Midwest's premier bicycle trail, which runs from Cannon Falls to Red Wing. Cannon Falls also offers the Cannon River Winery, excellent antique shops and great places to eat in its historic downtown.
The Cannon Falls Road Race winds through scenic Goodhue County before finishing on a circuit in downtown Cannon Falls. Sever weather forced the cancellation of this race last year, so riders will be doubly excited to take on the course this year.

Fan Zone Sports Tip: Cross winds can break up a race just like long mountain climbs. Since Cannon Falls Road Race course offers little shelter, expect the pack to shatter if it’s a windy day.
