Cook County, Minnesota is home to 100s of miles of county gravel, Forest Service roads and jeep trails to bike. When you load up your bike with camping gear you can spend days traveling between remote wilderness campsites, tossing a line into the 100s of lakes along the way, or if the season is right, picking blueberries. A bike overnight is simple way to travel, and the trips are easy to plan. You load your bike up for one or two days of travel, park your car in town and bike to a nearby campsite for the night. When there set up camp, relax and then watch the Milky Way cross the night sky. The speed of travel allows you to see a lot of the county at an intimate pace.
Join professional landscape photographer, Adventure Cycling Ambassador and North House Instructor Bryan Hansel to learn about how to plan a bike overnight and see photos and hear stories from adventures in Cook County. This presentation will take place during the afternoon of Friday, June 19 during the Wooden Boat Show and Summer Solstice Festival at the North House Folk School, 500 W Hwy 61, PO Box 759, Grand Marais, MN 55604.
