Cycling in Detroit Lakes, Minnesota
« on: July 12, 2010, 05:17:20 pm »
I just did a 26-mile tour in Detroit Lakes with my Surly LHT. I know 26 miles is a short ride for many cyclists, but for me it works. The scenery was great and the folks were friendly. There is a 42-mile tour too. I converted from a mountain bike to a touring bike this year and am enjoying it tremendously.

You make me want to bring my bike up to the cabin this week.  I am over by Perham on Big Pine Lake, but will likely spend most of the week on a pontoon boat, not a bike.

+1 for the Detroit Lakes Midsummer Tour. This was my first year as well and I found the event very well organized and the community festival a lot of fun. If you go, don't miss the post ride munchies at Zorbas, you get a coupon among the promotional items with your ride package.

OP, if you are still following this, I think I rode along side of you part of the way. Is your LHT black with a pannier? I was the guy on the red Trek 700 if you remember.
