Hills. We love them. We hate them. They make us strong. They make us weak. Today I chose to embrace hills.

Bike Pic Feb 6, The Climb Up Will Make You Weak, The Ride Down Will Prove You’re Strong

“Hills. We love them. We hate them. They make us strong. They make us weak. Today I
chose to embrace hills.”, a quote by Hal Higdon. Life is full of hills, but remember the law of physics, what goes up, must come down. The trip up it might be a struggle but the way down is smooth sailing.

Bike Pic December 5, The Fun of Fat Biking is in the Air

As the temps start dropping and snow is now on the ground, over most of Minnesota, the experience of fat biking can make the winter season more fun. The photo above was taken last year at a Penn Cycle event along the Minnesota River in Bloomington, MN.

As many upper Midwest bike riders are changing their gear over to winter activities, including fat biking, ice fishing, skiing, snowshoeing and other cold weather sports. See all the places to explore, throughout the year, in the new Minnesota Bike/Hike Guide
