Don’t put that bike away just yet! In the upper Midwest, riding in the fall is one of the best times of the year to explore the colorful bike-friendly destinations available. With warm days, cool nights, low humidity, very few insects, and the trees’ brilliant autumn colors, fall riding can be picture-perfect.
As our summer bike adventures drift into fond memories, we still have a colorful blaze of options ahead. When the tree foliage begins to change, first in Minnesota and then in Iowa, using the HaveFunBiking guides and the state DNR websites, it’s easy to expand your recreational riding through October.
