The Carlton Trunk & Tent Show Will Be Here April 21

Mark your calendars. On Thursday April 21 the Trunk and Tent Show will be rolling into town, sponsored by Carlton Bike Rental & Repair. Representatives from Framed Bike will be on hand with their latest and greatest biking gear. In addition the Louis Garneau Clothing Company will be showing samples of their complete spring line of hiking, biking and running apparel.

According to Joelene Steffens, president of Carlton Bike Rental & Repair, these kinds of events are popping up all around the country, creating experiences that bring both beginner and lifetime bicycle enthusiasts together. "This is a great opportunity to get advice from knowledgeable professionals on biking safety and the best gear for your biking or hiking needs," said Steffens.

Next week Carlton Bike Rental will have the latest 2016 GT Bikes on display as well as refreshments. There will also be drawings for prizes every 20 minutes throughout the afternoon and evening.

Carlton is an ideal kickoff point for Minnesota's famous bike trail network. For this reason there will also be reps from Cyclists of Gitchee Gumee Shores (COGGS), a chapter of the International Mountain Bicycling Association. Yes, we not only have paved trails for family outings but an astonishing network of mountain biking trails for serious adventurers.

This is more than a biking occasion. There will be representatives from Swiftwater Adventures, local pros with 50 years of experience guiding whitewater rafting and kayaking here on the St. Louis River as well as reps from the 50-mile Minnesota Voyageur Ultra Marathon and the Eugene Curnow Trail Marathon Race giving away free passes. Jay Cooke Park manager Lisa Angelos will be on hand to answer questions about the park and The Streetcar will contribute by grilling eats and offering libations via a cash bar.
