Routes (from South Lake Cycle)
South Lake Cycle is located just 1/2 block south of the Lake Minnetonka LRT Regional Trail as it passes through downtown Excelsior. The Lake Minnetonka LRT is a 15 mile crushed limestone multi-use trail that stretches from Carver Park to Hopkins.
CARVER PARK and VICTORIA: West on the Lake Minnetonka LRT
From Excelsior, ride approx. 5 miles west to Carver Park, a beautiful nature reserve with its own approx. 9 miles of paved, mostly wooded biking trails. Ride an additional mile past Carver Park to downtown Victoria and check out the local businesses including multiple options for great meals, an ice cream parlor, and local brewery.
COTTAGEWOOD/DEEPHAVEN: East on the Lake Minnetonka LRT
