Wow what a great time this past Saturday for the Great River Energy Ride on the Mesabi Trail. More than 700 bikers were out enjoying a great day on the trail. And a big tip of the helmet to all the volunteers and organizers who make this ride even possible. This was the first bike tour I have been on but I was very impressed with how smooth everything went. This year the ride started in three places, Giants Ridge, Virginia, and Buhl, and ended in Bennett Park in Hibbing. Several members of my family and several friends all rode for the first time, and we plan to be back again next year. Hope to see you out on the trail, and until then keep pedaling!
