Spirit Lake / Okoboji, Iowa route from Minneapolis
« on: August 12, 2011, 06:24:47 pm »
Have any of my Minnesota brethren made a run down to Spirit Lake or Lake Okoboji area of Iowa from the Twin Cities?  I am going with my son to a Victory rally (he is a vendor to Polaris) this weekend and am looking for good roads to ride.

You know how to stay along the river to Mankato after that you may as will slab it down 60 and then 90 and south even the county roads are square sections

Sadly LSGiant is correct, from Mankato take 60 all the way to St. James exit then head south to 90. Pretty much all straight but going around both the lakes are a nice ride once you get here.
