The 4-hour Scenic North Shore Bicycle Tour starts in Duluth where you and your fellow cyclists are met by our Team at the Fitger’s Complex in Downtown Duluth and transported to your starting point at Brighton Beach on the north-east end of town. After arriving at Brighton Beach, your guide will make sure your bike and helmet are properly fitted and provide you with useful information about your bikes, cycling technique and road safety… all the ingredients for a fun, safe, and efficient ride. Then it’s time for the fun! You’ll set off on a leisurely route that follows Scenic Highway 61 along Lake Superior’s North Shore. Along the way, you’ll learn about the origins of Lake Superior, the geology of the North Shore and the history of the region. You’ll even have a chance to skip rocks and search for agates during a few scenic resting stops.
Upon arriving in Two Harbors, we’ll grab dinner from the Vanilla Bean Restaurant and head over to the Castle Danger Brewing Company where you can enjoy your meal and an 11-oz victory beer – made with Lake Superior water! Our Team will pack up your bikes and gear while you relax and enjoy the fruits of your labor. After dinner you’ll hop aboard our comfortable tour van and enjoy a quick ride back to the Fitger’s Complex in Duluth.
