I actually live off 121st ave between university and Foley in Coon Rapids... but its not far.

I'm planning on taking the route this evening if anyone wants to join me. All my friends are busy, and I don't want to go alone, so unless someone joins me I probably wont go. I'm at work right now, so either reply here or shoot me a txt/call (763)568-5472.

Oh, Beckett, do you live in those apartments there?

What time were you thinking about heading out? I might be down for checking this out with you depending on the time. Might also be a good idea to post something up in the group rides section since this would probably get more attention there. Looks like a sweet ride.

Yeah it's actually a large townhome complex. Right on the corner of Egret and Kumquat basically.

I used to ride BMX past there almost everyday a couple years ago to get to the jumps in that park down by robinson.

I tried the few chunks of the route that I could remember, but I missed a lot of it. lol

I'll have to try it again. Those curves by Fawn Lake Rd in East Bethel are TERRIFIC though. Brand new pavement, and most of the corners have open sight lines. Perfect chicken strip removers!

The pieces I saw were worth the trip on their own. There were two large sections of curves I didn't even get to.

Be incredibly cautious in E. Bethel. That's where I grew up and the local boys in blue are very attentive to people like us.

That being said, co rd 68(Greenbrook dr) has some bomb ass sweepers. Just watch out for the coppers that like to sit at the new fire station on the south end of the road.
