Here at the Ridge we have a lot of pastimes, including skiing, golf, and biking. Too often golf and skiing get to hold the spotlight as the area is notorious for having spectacular experiences to offer pros and hobbyist alike, and while golf season is still in full swing, we’re about to enter the best time of the year for some serious biking.
We’re not talking tour-de-france marathon rides with smooth terrain and high efficiency. No my friend, here at the Ridge we do things a little different: We hit the trails, hard. We’re talking dust and dirt, mud and muck, we’re talking about the road less travelled. Giant’s Ridge and the Mesabi trail have some of the best trail rides in northern Minnesota that any level of bike enthusiasts should check out.
And there’s never been a better time either as September is home to the Legendary Laurentian Adventure. This bike ride is a 50 mile multi-surface event that crosses gravel roads, snowmobile trails, ski trails, and even Mesabi Bike Trail. It’s a self-supported ride that will have you tracking some of the best trails in Minnesota with fellow riders from 10am until you cross the finish line. Unlike some rides, the roads and trails will not be closed so normal traffic rules still apply.
As mentioned, this is a self-supported ride so make sure you’re prepared and ready for anything the trail might throw at you! On top of that, we’ll be riding a lot of different terrain including snowmobile trails, so tires 33mm or larger are highly recommend to increase the enjoyment of your ride.
