Anyone ever scooted to Owatonna? Know a good route?

I'm going to check with Map24 and with my Owatonna friends, too, but I thought I'd see if any of you had done it...

C'on Morgan be a man and take 169 the whole way! I have some mapping software I'll play around later.

169 wouldn't get you there...
and 35w would be an even worse scoot.
i've biked it before - so it's definately possible - but i don't remember the exact route. through burnsville, county roads south past nerstrand i think, and we wound up on highway 1 north of faribault. from there it's a pretty easy shot down to medford and then any number of county roads will send you in to owatonna - i recomend old cedar, pretty and about the hilliest terrain you'll find in flat steele county... don't forget to check out the louis sullivan bank and mineral springs park if you've never been before.

You don't say where your starting point is.

i'll be leaving from home - 51st and nicollet.
but, i was looking at it again last night, and, if you were leaving from west metro you could take 169 down a good share of the way as matt suggested... that would take you to 13, and 60 and so on.
