Free Bikes 4 Kidz MN was looking forward to June 20th for another spectacular day of riding through Scott County, followed by a fun-filled celebration in the park featuring Shakopee’s local eateries and breweries, live music and family activities all afternoon.

But your safety is our top priority, and because of the uncertainty surrounding the COVID-19 virus, we have made the difficult decision to postpone the 2020 MN Ironman Bike Ride until September 26.

We are committed to the safety of our riders, communities, volunteers, staff, and sponsors. We continue to work with our partners in Shakopee Parks and Recreation and the Shakopee Jaycees to put on an amazing event this fall.

With the change in schedule, we will be extending our Plan Ahead registration price through August 31. Our Last Minute price will end on September 23.

We plan to create a Virtual Event on June 20, 2020 to celebrate the day. Stay tuned for information about the event.

We look forward to a fantastic event this fall and we are excited to see you all in Shakopee.

In this time of uncertainty, our friends at Apple Ford Lincoln Apple Valley, have an important message: "Come together."

Life is full of unexpected events, but within them lie tremendous opportunity. As many of you know, the global impact of COVID-19 has caused significant increase in food insecurity as schools and businesses are slowing down.

But there’s good news! Some of our local friends are taking action, 360 Communities, The Link, and The Sheridan Story, but they need our help. Thankfully, generosity isn’t quarantined. Swipe to see how these 3 charities are making a difference and how you can too! #AppleAutosCares

We at the MN Ironman Bike Ride are following the COVID-19 decisions and recommendations of state and local officials closely. The 2020 ride is over 3 months away and much can change in that time. Currently, we have no plans to postpone or cancel the 2020 ride, but we are continually monitoring the situation.

Crazy and unusual times are happening. Stay safe, friends, and look forward to the bike ride in June.

General information

Over the years the ride has grown and changed. We moved the ride location, as ridership grew, from Minneapolis to Buffalo to the current home of Lakeville, MN. We have added more routes as well. We have something for all cyclists now, including 25, 50, 75 and 100 miles. But one thing remains constant: the Minnesota Ironman is the spring opener bicycle event in Minnesota. It’s the original Ironman, the grandfather of midwestern bicycle events, and the qualitative measuring stick for all subsequent rides. In case you are wondering, this is not a triathlon. It’s not a race of any sort. It’s a recreational bike ride or cyclists of all skill levels and ambitions. Pure and simple. We pre-date the Ironman Triathlon, and have a licensing agreement with them to continue using our original name: The Minnesota Ironman® Bicycle Ride.

#VirtualMNIMBR Me and a friend riding 25 miles. Love bike 🚲 ridding.
Just checking in to see if there are still plans for a virtual event tomorrow? Still looking forward to seeing everyone in September!
Has a decision been made about this event? I registered and if the event will not be held would like to be refunded my money.
Is there a plan yet for the 2020 ride - going forward or cancelling? Riding my bike around the bike just in case it's still on; we signed up for the century lol...
Any news in of this ride will still be happening? What would happening to those who registered and paid if this ride is cancelled?
are you coming back in 2020?
Couple shots along the way...
I am wondering if the photos from the event will be posted online? It's been awhile and just thought I'd ask.
Looks like we will get some traditional Ironman weather with thunderstorms forecasted!
I'm sure I am not the only one hoping for any kind of update from the organizers/former organizers...
Jon Vick Sean Peotter Michael Bollinger Michael Browne Jay Arrowsmith DeCoux Penn Cycle Erik's Bike - Board - Ski Twin Cities Bicycling Club (TCBC) I am sending this link to anyone I can think of that this even means something to them. What needs to happen to keep this going? Is there something we can do?
Will the ride be in Waconia again this year?
