I'm going to do a test run to Oceola run this Sunday. If you (or anyone else) wants come along, I'll be at the Como Park Pavillion at 12:30, we'll leave at 1 pm.

Probably will do one route on the way up and the other route on the way back.

Route 1:
from Como Park
* Maryland East
* Edgerton North
* Centerville Rd
* County Road E to 75th into Stillwater
* Owens St. N
* Norell Av N
* Olinda Trl N (through Scandia)
* 260th St east
* Cross 95 to 243 into Osceola

Route 2:
* Highway 95 south
* Highway 96 west
* Centerville Rd and home

I gotta get that microsoft mapping program.

Dave and I did the test run to Oseola today. Route 1 worked pretty good, except that the last leg on 260th street turned out to be gravel road! It's definitely less traveled than Highway 95.

It's 49 miles from Como Park to Osceola and we made it in about 1 1/2 hours. To skip the gravel, we could cut over to Highway 95 at Scandia or Highway 97 a mile or two before the exit to Osceola.

First leg of Duluth Run Route:
from Como Park
* Maryland East
* Edgerton North
* Centerville Rd
* County Road E to 75th into Stillwater
* Owens St. N
* Norell Av N
* Olinda Trl N (through Scandia)
* Highway 97 East
* Highway 95 North
* 243 into Osceola

Olinda actually goes into Lindstrom. That would make a nice fall colors run someday. [/quote]

Going through Scandia is no big deal. Not a lot of traffic and flat roads.
Would have loved to joined you guys today. Girlfriend and domestic chores dicatated otherwise...
