“Very attentive tour leaders; excellent service by staff” Mark R.
Minnesota has become perhaps our most cycling-friendly state. The state’s network of paved, off-road, long-distance bicycle trails is without equal in the U.S. We’ll ride the Gitchi-Gami Trail along Lake Superior’s North Shore, the Mesabi Trail that extends from the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness to Grand Rapids, the Paul Bunyan Trail from Walker to Brainerd, and the Munger Trail to Hinckley. These magnificent paved trails provide the corridors through which we’ll experience Minnesota’s beautiful Land of 10,000 Lakes.
