Lodging for 2015

We will be following a similar route to last year:
How we get from Korkki to Grand Portage (hence the bus ticket)

  • Meet at Korkki Ski area by 8am, load bikes and gear in box truck, and load people in tour bus.
  • Proceed in tour bus to Grand Portage where the real adventure begins
Stage 1: Ride from Grand Portage to Grand Marais (~60 miles)
Rolling down pin cushion

Stage 2: ride bikes from Grand Marais to Silver Bay/Beaver Bay (~100 miles)
Obligatory stop at the trestle inn for lunch and tetherball

Stage 3: Ride bikes from Beaver Bay back to the Korkki Ski area (~50 miles)
Briton Pit mine section

As we are starting to fill up I would like you to think about where you would like to stay for the two nights that we will be out. We will be staying in Grand Marais the first night, and Silver Bay/Beaver Bay the second night.

In Grand Marais (September 11th, 2015) here are some places that I have stayed at or have come recommended:
Art House B&B
Macarthur House B&B
Gunflint Motel
Grand Marais Municipal Campground
Other lodging options are available through the Cook Co Visitors Bureau

The second night (September 12th, 2015) we will be staying in Silver Bay/Beaver Bay (they are only 2 miles apart). Lodging options are limited so make your reservation early.
AmericInn in Silver Bay (its pricey but they have a hot tub and a giant waterslide that will make grown men squeal)
The Mariner in Silver Bay (they want a 2 day stay, but 2 nights at the Mariner is still cheaper than one night at the Americinn.)
The Silver Bay Marina Campground: They have a few campsites at the marina that they do not advertise. You will need to call to reserve these.
Camp 61 Bunkhouse in Beaver Bay (We actually start the last day from right in front of this place)

  1. That seemed like a great ride! Especially the Briton Pit mine section. One of the best things cycling can give - the great trails!
