|Keep in mind that the Twin Cities Marathon is scheduled to begin at 8AM on 9/29/02 at the Metrodome with a finish at the State Capitol. The race course will be closed to all traffic for six hours. It looks like the bike route intersects with the Marathon and 10 mile version of the race.|

|The 10 mile route is using East River Road beginning at 7:30am. We'll be able to come off the Stone Arch Bridge and use the Bike Path past the run route, south through the warehouse district to the Cedar Lake Trail.
We'll cross over the run route on the Midtown Greenway. We'll likely be out ahead of the runners so we proabably won't see anyone.
We'll cross the route again at street level at Minnehaha Parkway. We'll likely still be out ahead of the runners.
I thought it would be fun to visit the finish line as part of the ride so I have us coming into the Capital from the north.
Hope you can make it.
