The North Shore is an excellent place to bike ride with gorgeous forests, elevation, and wide open vistas of Lake Superior. Fat bikes mean winter riding – the lower air pressure and fat tires allow you to float over snowy trails where other tires would sink. Local bike riders are introducing the sport and opening trails along the shore. Come back to this page as it is brand new and I expect to have more trails and info listed as it becomes available.
