Cycle America’s cross-country tour: a day of rest in Northfield

Cycle America’s coat-to-coast bicycle tour came to Northfield (from Hutchinson, the last leg of the Mighty Rivers segment) last night and many of the participants were spending money in the coffeeshops of downtown Northfield this morning, including the Goodbye Blue Monday.

Today is a day of rest so they’ll be camped one more night in town, most of them at the Northfield High School.  Tomorrow, the tour’s Heartland Patchwork segment takes them east to Cannon Falls on Hwy 19 where they’ll take the Cannon Valley Trail to Red Wing and then on to Pepin, WI.

Former Northfielder Don Haugo founded Cycle America many years ago. He sold the company back in the 90s.  Anyone know where he is now?

    Hey Don, great to hear from you… and that you’re still doing the outdoor thing. I’d never heard of water cycling.
