Northland, North Country, It's All the Same

Bob Dylan referred to this part of the world as the North Country. Many others here call it the Northland. Which is it?

Well, it's really both, and so much more. Whatever you call it, it's beautiful. So make sure you get out and ride our trails sometime this summer. Wild raspberries are happening at the moment and everything is lush. Munger Trail is as beautiful as ever.

William Shakespeare once noted, "The earth has music for those who listen." And in another place Ol' Bill wrote, “I like this place and could willingly waste my time in it.”

He must have been thinking about the Northland when he wrote that. We know he would have loved it here. And we know you'll love it, too.

The best way to enjoy any vista is to take it slow. Take a break from the rat race.

Stop by the next time you're biking out this way. And if you don't have bikes for your family, then we'll make sure to equip you with just what you need. This weekend will be a good one to stop by and check us out. We look forward to meeting you.

Munger Trail Is Open

Nearly everyone knows about the devastation that occurred here in the Northland. What power Mother Nature has! Jay Cooke State Park took a major hit, as did all the properties near the rivers that feed our great lake.

Fortunately many of the roads that were damaged have been examined to make sure they were safe once the waters receded. So, too, our wonderful bike trail, which many heard was impacted... Munger Bike Trail is now open, however.  Whatever the weather, the trail will welcome you.

If you ever have questions about trail conditions or how to find us, feel free to give us a call at 384-4696. We'd love to see you. Stop in sometime, either to rent a bike, or fix one. We have treats, too. And warm hearts.

Have a great weekend.
