Summer is here so it’s time to get outside and explore the trails in Stillwater. With three connecting trails – St. Croix Loop Trail that goes over the new bridge, the Brown’s Creek Trail and the Gateway State Trail that connects to St. Paul, Minnesota – Stillwater is a beautiful destination for a summer getaway.
Didn’t bring your bike on your travels or perhaps you need a little warm up before you try to bike miles with the use of your weak winter muscles? Gateway Trailside has a solution for you! Imagine starting your bike trail route at an adorable and very tasty food truck along the Gateway State Trail where they now have electric cruiser bikes for rent. They are stylish, comfortable and easy. Easy to figure out how to operate and they make it easy to cover a longer trip should you desire. Tired of pedaling? Simply kick on the motor for a boost and take a break. Let the wind flow through your hair (under your helmet of course) and open your eyes to see the beauty of prairies, woods, creeks, bridges, golf courses and the historic riverfront downtown of Stillwater.
You could continue on the Gateway State Trail, but just a 7 mile ride from Gateway Trailside and you’ll be downtown Stillwater, so we recommend a turn onto the Brown’s Creek trail when you hit Duluth Juction and a coast downhill into downtown.
Depending on how many times you stop to take pictures or read the history displays you may arrive downtown in as quick as a half hour. Lock up your bikes and spend the day browsing Main Street boutiques and candy shops. Grab lunch and a cool drink on a patio or enjoy a picnic together in riverfront Lowell Park while you watch the boats go by on the St. Croix River.
More about these hip cycles…The electric bikes are Pedego brand. A Pedego is just like a regular bike – only better. You can pedal normally (or not) and get power when you want it. The battery will last for 40 miles of moderate use with average size person.You have the freedom to go farther and faster, and to conquer hills and headwinds with ease. It feels like being a kid again! (verified via personal experience). Rent for 2, 4, or 8 hours. If you want to give yourself time downtown Stillwater, definately go for the 4 hour rental.
For rentals longer than 4 hours, Gateway Trailside is offering a limited time ‘picnic deal’ where they’ll pack a healthy picnic for you that fits perfectly in your cruiser bike’s basket!
How sweet is that? Date idea…guys and gals! This is very thoughtful and special way to spend the day together don’t you think? mother/daughter, father/son, grandparents, girlfriends…this fun idea is great for all adults (16yr old min age). Online rental is preferred, so plan ahead to reserve your bikes. If you prefer to have the bikes delivered to your hotel or Bed & Breakfast, with prior notice this can also be arranged. We hope you enjoy this experience while in Stillwater as we always recommend a dose of nature on your visit!
