The Tour de Tonka is an annual bike ride through in August through the west metro. It started in 2006 with 816 riders and has grown to nearly 3,500 people who eagerly anticipate it every year. There are several rides, including The Family Ride (16 miles), The Road Trip (42 miles) and Tonka Century (100) miles among others. It is run by the Minnesota Public Schools and a portion of the proceeds are given to the ICA Food Shelf. The MPS takes their responsibility to provide safe routes seriously and makes sure to emphasize that it's a ride, not a race. There are rest stops along the way, filled with music and refreshments! It's fun for the whole family.
