At a Glance

Minneapolis is consistently ranked as one of the top cities for cyclists not only in the U.S., but in the world. Join fellow biking buffs in Minneapolis and surrounding Northwoods towns as you cycle past cityscapes, through lush state parks and a national forest or along the Mississippi and Lake Itasca for an up-close perspective on these natural and cultural gems. Watch for nesting eagles in Chippewa National Forest, and learn the history of the park with a Native American resident. Stop in quaint river cities along the Great River Road to experience history museums and Midwest hospitality, as you experience “Minnesota nice.”
