2023 Great River Energy Mesabi Trail Tour
Ride for the fun or ride for the challenge – Saturday, August 5, 2023
Join us on the Mesabi Trail for the most fun you can have on two wheels! Choose from different routes of varying lengths (usually ranging from 10 to 60 miles) all traveling out and back on Trail from one start/finish location.
While you pedal (fully supported) along one of Minnesota’s premiere paved bicycle trails you will encounter historic & scenic points of interest, enjoy food & music at rest stops, and a finish line celebration complete with lunch and more music!
Whichever route you choose, you will experience the same outstanding customer service and reliable logistics we’ve become famous for since 2005!
Cost is $45 per person for folks 17 and older – kids 16 and under ride FREE!
REGISTRATION OPENS IN THE SPRING.
New for 2023:
- We’re excited to announce a brand new tour route! We will be riding between Ely & Tower, showcasing the newest section of the Mesabi Trail. Check back for more details as we work them out.
Selecting Your Route:
- The Mesabi Trail is not a rail-to-trail conversion…it is NOT flat & straight, there are a number of hills (some steep) and curves (some sharp). While this public trail is open at all times, our tour volunteers will be on the course only until 5:00 pm. – PLEASE select your route according to your abilities to assure you will be able to finish the tour in a timely fashion.
- You will encounter TWO-WAY bicycle traffic on the tour.
The tour is a fundraiser for the Mesabi Trail and Club Mesabi, the “friends” of the Mesabi Trail.
