Maybe I missed it. Did anybody post some loop rides or places of interest for this year's CCR?
Thanks for the tips!ChiefMn said:Jay Cook State Park, One of the best roads in the state is closed due to heavy rains earlier this year.
Hwy 61 up the north shore of Superior to Hwy 1 north to Ely is a nice ride.
Me and my brother rode the Echo trail from Ely to Orr a few years ago.
It's not paved but was very well maintained.I was on a K1200Lt and he had a R1150RT .
Hwy 38 north out of Grand rapids is an excellant twisty road.
Gunflint Trail out of Grand Marais is very good.
Really,just about any area in that part of the state has interesting roads.A tour through the little towns on the Iron Range is a must .Aurora,Virginia,Gilbert,Eveleth,ect.
The Soudan mine is supposed to be awesome.
That route is already in my GPS for a day trip . :bike:icepick578 said:And don't forget a whole lot of possibilities by heading east into Wisconsin -- Hwy 13 along Lake Superior from Superior all the way over to Bayfield and back along Hwy 2, or meander through National Forest roads.
NO !! Bambi better watch out for me !!!icepick578 said:But watch for deer!
thanks, included route diversion to Washburn and Bayfield Monday. Coco's? is that Coco Artisan Breads & Fine Pastries?CaptainCBL said:Head over to Bayfield, WI. Ride over on 13, ride back to Daloot on 2. On you way out of Bayfield, if you have room on your bike, stop at the Pie Lady and grab one of her home-made pies. Next stop: Washburn. Lunch at Coco's. Also has great bread. Across the street a short way-- North Coast coffee. Or-- in Ashland: The Black Cat coffee shop. Across the street from the Black Cat is Ashland Bakery. Crazy good stuff.
My wife and I have a summer place in Bayfield. Great place in the summer-- waaayyy to cold in the winter.
And-- if you have the time, in Bayfield you can catch the Ferry out to Madekine Island great riding out there.
