We are looking forward to start caching along a Bike Trail. Please respond with your favorite. If it's already been said, please tell me a different one, too.

The Luce Line is pretty good. It's not necessarily a "power trail" but it's a nice trail with a lot of caches along it.

Yeah, they are all under water and we strapped weights to our bikes to keep us on the bottom!

Actually, start here and head west: http://coord.info/GC2G8E1

I did the Bikeathon series, Minnehaha and a few others. But the best one so far is the Sakatah Singing Hills State Trail Very Happy . I did it last weekend with ten of Minnesota's finest cachers. Many great caches of different types to be found there. We were able to get more than 140, and there are more. I will return to get the rest.

Just adding only 45 minutes from the south metro. Well worth the drive.

That would have been fun. How long did it take to get 140 caches?

We started @7:30 and ended at @4:00. Parked our cars at the midway point and the end for a one way trip.

The Gateway Trail runs from Pine Point Park (a few miles north of Stillwater) all the way into St Paul.

Here is a cache near the trailhead:

And here's a cache at the other end:

It is a paved trail the whole way and it goes through some beautiful areas. Not exactly a power trail but you can easily get a few dozen caches in a day if you start early and ride hard.
