Fat Tire Biking

Saturday, September 28th, 2019

Back in high school, I used to do trials biking ~5 times a week, but here, in icy Duluth, bringing my bike this last few years has proven inefficient, so this semester I didn’t bring it. But today was too nice a day out to not be outdoors, so today I went biking. Since I didn’t have my bike with me, I decided to rent one from Outdoor Pursuit (OP). Among a panoply of gear from many different disciplines, OP rents fat tire bikes, which as you might imagine, are great for biking on the snow. Today there was certainly no snow, but I had a blast biking through the trails in Chester Park and around town near Canal Park!

Lakewalk Duluth

Monday, April 9th, 2018

Ah yes, the infamous Lakewalk! Many visitors, tourists, and even locals find themselves on the Lakewalk in Canal Park throughout the year. Some running, some biking, some walking or stepping off to take scenic pictures of Lake Superior and the surrounding parks and landmarks of Duluth. However, many people don’t realize that the Lakewalk extends far beyond just Canal Park and the Fitgers complex. The Lakewalk is actually a 7.5 mile paved path that extends from the Bayfront Festival Park all the way out to Brighton Beach along the north end of Duluth. Check out the link below and if you find yourself looking for a great place to run, bike, or even watch ships come in/out of the harbor check out the link below for a map of the Lakewalk and some good locations to do those activities..

Hartley Biking Adventure

Sunday, July 19th, 2015

My roommate and I decided to hit the trails near Hartley Nature Center last week on our bikes. Kyle, my roommate, is a big mountain biker. You could say he knows what he’s doing. Me on the other hand…not so much. Thankfully Kyle showed me the ropes and we took it decently slow.

Well U + Student Senate 

Friday, April 24th, 2015

Well U and student senate teamed up to offer the student body a chance to win a new fat tire bike! Every participant is given a card with eight open slots. Every thirty minutes of working out yields a signature from the front desk at the BWC. Eight signatures fills up the card, and gets entered in the drawing for the bike. A couple more days and I’ll have a full card. Fingers crossed! 

Duluth and Mountain Biking

Wednesday, April 22nd, 2015

Over the past few years I have witnessed the Duluth mountain biking  scene go from a small, relatively unknown attraction, to the well-known respectable community that it has become. Many of the local bike shops, local government, and other organizations (like COGGS and Spirit Mountain) have placed a huge amount of effort into expanding the amount of biking trails in Duluth. This common goal has led to a huge growth of trails and national attention. Check out the most recent news broadcast, here.
