The 2022 Great River Energy Mesabi Trail Tour returns in August with four fun distances for that next bike adventure. All routes will travel out and back on the Mesabi Trail from the Minnesota Discovery Center in Chisholm (MDC).
This year’s ride will be returning to one extensive tour on Saturday, August 20th, with four different routes out and back to eliminate the hassle & confusion riders felt from bike transportation requirements in past tours. All four tour routes (12, 32, 46, or 64 miles) will start and end at MDC, with two routes traveling east and the other two traveling west.
Partnering with the Minnesota Discovery Center, the center offers free admission to the museum for all riders and reduced fees for trolley rides & mini-golf. MDC is also home to the new Redhead mountain bike park.
On the Mesabi Trail Tour, the trail crosses one of the iron ore train tracks.
While you pedal (fully supported) along one of Minnesota’s premiere paved bicycle trails, you will encounter historic & scenic points of interest, food & music at rest stops, and a finish line celebration complete with a picnic lunch and more music!
Cost of riding the Mesabi Trail Tour in 2022
The cost of riding this year’s event (cost per weekend ride) is $45 for riders 17 years and older. The ride is still free for kids 16 and under, with a parent or guardian riding along.
The scenery is stunning along the Mesabi Trail.
Mesabi Trail Tour riders enjoy the scenery at O’Brian Reservoir.
Spring, Summer, or Fall, your riding experience on the Mesabi Trail is what great memories are made.
