The Jesse James Bike Tour
Thanks for Riding!
The 32nd annual Jesse James Bike Tour was a success! Despite the heat, we saw over 1,100 riders on our five different routes. A big thanks goes out to all of our sponsors, volunteers, participants and spectators. All proceeds from the ride benefit community projects, including the Mill Towns Trail and Northfield’s Safe Routes to School program. Read more about the tour in the Northfield News.
The tour is an official event of Defeat of Jesse James Days, one of Minnesota’s largest community celebrations. Held the weekend after Labor Day each year, Defeat of Jesse James Days commemorates the failed bank robbery of 1876 that led to the ultimate downfall of the James-Younger gang. Stay tuned for details about next year’s bike tour, to be held Saturday, September 6, 2014.
