Cuyuna MTB Weekend

September 27 @ 5:00 pm - September 29 @ 2:00 pm

Fall colors, crystal clear lakes and mountain biking, does it get any better? Join North Star Mountain Bike Guides for a weekend tailored to advanced beginner through intermediate mountain bikers looking to explore the trails of Cuyuna Country State Recreation Area in a guided atmosphere. This weekend is about enjoying the beautiful trails of Cuyuna, socialization, food, and relaxation. Each day includes a guided mountain bike ride and lunch.

The Riding
Cuyuna Country State Recreation Area is known for its red dirt trails that overlook the mining lakes of Northern Minnesota. Each day North Star Mountain Bike Guides will plan a three-hour ride, taking all the guesswork out of map reading and choosing which trails to ride. The riding will be on mostly green (beginner) and blue flow (intermediate) trails, and will include favorites such as Bobsled and Sidewinder. Options will always be available for those looking for more challenge on black (advanced) trails.

After a morning of riding, we will pedal to Red Raven Bike Cafe in Crosby for a well earned lunch. Guests will order a la carte from Red Raven’s variety of hot and cold sandwiches, espresso drinks, teas, beer and wine. Red Raven can accommodate dietary restrictions and prepare any sandwich as a salad. All lunch costs, including beer, wine and tip, is included in your weekend package.
