This afternoon about 25 people turned out for the first ever West St. Paul Rider community bike ride celebrating the River-to-River Greenway in West St. Paul. The casual ride explored the new trails and Robert Street underpass.
A ribbon-cutting ceremony for the underpass will be held on Thursday, October 7, and here’s a rundown of the future projects coming to the Greenway.
Several elected officials came out, including Dakota County Commissioner Joe Atkins, West St. Paul City Council Member Lisa Eng-Sarne, and ISD 197 School Board Member Maureen Ramirez. We also raised money for the Residents of Color Collective (ROCC).
If you missed the ride and want to experience the trails for yourself, check out our maps and get out there:
Here’s a handy PDF of the short route with distances and quick directions on where to go for longer routes.
Thanks to everyone who came out and to all those who have supported the River-to-River Greenway over the years. Big thanks to WSP Greenway Project for their advocacy.
