Cyclova XC Group Weekend Workout Plans Finalized

One of the many amazing running trail options in the St. Croix River Valley.


The plans for this weekend's Cyclova XC Weekend Workout Extravaganza have been finalized. A fun couple of days, with some great workouts, and beautiful Autumn weather is in store!

These workouts will be throughout the Upper St. Croix River Valley region highlighting a number of the choice places to train in this beautiful area.

Skiers and runners of all abilities are absolutely welcome to join us. There will be a range of skier abilities and everyone will be accommodated and welcomed with wide open arms! Additionally, some basic coaching or help with technique will be available for those whom desire it.


Following is the planned schedule of events:


SATURDAY:

9:00AM:
Skate Rollerski rolling from the church parking lot in Scandia, MN. This will be the toughest workout of the weekend. We will do a warm up and then ski a couple of laps on a 5 mile course with gently rolling terrain. A few of the locals plan on doing the 2 laps at a time trial pace, but most likely will just be out there having fun.
Noon:
Lunch at the Coffee Time Coffee Shop, in St. Croix Falls, WI
1:45PM:
Spectate and cheer on racers at the Red Barn CycloCross Classic Cyclo-Cross race in Taylors Falls, MN. Bring your cow bells!
4:00PM:
Easy 1 hour Classic Rollerski on the starting at the junction of the River Road and Hwy 87, about 2 miles north of St. Croix Falls
6:30PM:
Dinner at the Indian Creek Winery, in St. Croix Falls, WI

SUNDAY:

8:00AM:
Trail run at William O'Brien State Park. Meet at the main park building / ski trail head. This run is a long standing tradition with the local community on O'Brien's great XC Ski Trail system. Run will likely be 1.5 hours or so at an easy pace.

Please let us know which workouts or meals you plan on attending. I plan on giving both restaurants a rough head count so they know what to expect.


See you this weekend!

  1. Note that lunch will not be at Coffee Time. Rather, at a coffee shop called "The Lucky Cup" in St. Croix Falls. The lucky cup is next to the Post Office, near the Holiday Gas Station in St. Croix Falls.

    See you there!
