Cook County, Minn. (Nov. 19, 2019) – Returning to Lutsen, Minn. for the fourth year, registration is now open for the Norpine Fat Bike Classic. On Saturday, Jan. 11, 2020, riders will have the opportunity to challenge their winter cycling endurance as they pedal across established cross-country ski trails on the Norpine Cross Country Trail system.
Riders can register for either the long 26-mile course (10 a.m. start) or short 15-mile course (10:05 a.m. start). The race start and finish are also new this year with Cascade Lodge hosting pre and post-race registration and festivities. Thom and Jelena McAleer, owners of Cascade Lodge, are excited to bring bikers along with their friends and families to the lodge and pub. The 45NRTH Post Race Party located at 3719 West Highway 61, Lutsen, Minn. will include local libations from North Shore Winery and Voyageur Brewing.
