Take off, to the Great White North. Take off, it’s a beauty way to go.

Way to early for making guesstimates. Hit me up about two days before the Guess the Route contest opens.

A slight modification to straycat’s route:

From Estherville head north and hit pass-through towns of Sherburn, Fairmont & Blue Earth (yes, Minnesota side) and then down to Lake Mills. Not traditional but something new for riders this year.

Good show, ST.  I figured the reference would be too subtle if I had posted a picture of this guy —

As I said several months ago, here is what I think the route will be:

Le Mars
Sibley
Emmetsburg
Forest City
Osage
Decorah
West Union
Guttenberg

And, of course, I think it would be better going from Guttenberg west to LeMars but I’m not going to second guess the “authorities” any more. Just nicely suggest.

Don’t think you’ll have to wait long or travel far in either case next year, Mich! 😎
