If the concrete jungle has got you wondering where the heck some gravel roads are west of Minneapolis, couple ideas for you:

  • Luce Line - It goes out of MPLS and if you are able to navigate the Plymouth morass, it ends up turning into crushed limestone. You can have a good time riding out and dipping off for too many gravel roads to shake a stick at.
  • The gutters of most streets in MPLS contain a fair amount of sand and other refuse which simmulates the unpredicability of gravel road conditions
  • Check the map below for a ride adds a bit of gravel to the mix

    1. Does anyone have the route to connect to the Luce Line from downtown MPLS?

    2. Go to to find the route. Type in downtown minneapolis and luce line. You basically go through Theo Wirth and then a confusing jaunt through Plymouth. After that it is bike trail
