Father-Son Retirement Celebration Ride

After my Dad retired, he wanted to do something crazy, so he asked me to bike around the Lake with him. Neither of us had bike-packing experience, but our local bike shop helped us gear up. The trip was great! We biked an average of 65 miles a day, camped at campgrounds and stayed in hotels. We went clockwise around the Lake starting and ending in Duluth.

Wet but Fun!

The Canadian portion of our tour was brought with mist or rain, we never saw the sun the five days we were there. We were lucky in that whenever we stopped to hike or tour the rain turned to a tolerable mist! After we reached home and reflected on our trip we both realized what a great trip it was despite the weather. We anticipate doing the tour again next More

Awesome Trip

We had a truly awesome tour around Lake Superior. We spent 10 wonderful days of travel. Some days we saw much more than expected and some days we saw less. Most importantly, we did not let “time” be a dictating factor. If you are considering or planning this tour, give yourself at least 1 or 2 extra days to take in the unforeseen beauty. Enjoy! You will never forget the More

50th Birthday Trip

We found out that we were about a month early for being on 2 wheels! Overall, the weather was very cool and rainy almost every day. We did have a few days of nicer weather, but it never got above about 55 degrees most days. Even with all of that, we did have a wonderful trip. We decided to officially start our trip in Duluth, MN. We stopped at Two More

We had no idea how awesome this trip would be!!

My husband and I love to travel and explore the world (We were engaged in Jelly Fish Lake in Palau). However, since having children, such travel has become difficult. Our boys were 7, 4, and 1 when we bought a 12 passenger van and decided to show them the driveable world now and deal with the rest later. Our first trip was around Lake Superior (counter-clock-wise). 8 days, mostly hotels, More

Solo Cycle Circle Tour

From May 28-June 23 I traveled by bicycle clockwise around Gitche Gumee, beginning and ending in Duluth MN. I cycled 25 days over 1,500 miles, camping almost every night and averaging 60mi/97km per day, and all but the first 3 days were done solo. My compiled daily journal from trip can be found here: https://www.crazyguyonabike.com/doc/?o=1mr&doc_id=20075&v=3L As a queer and transgender woman, completing the circle solo gives me an extra sense More
