Singletrack 2012

On Thursday, 4/12/12, the Superior Cycling Association (SCA) board met to hear the latest on singletrack building. Cory Berg, our current USFS liason, says that phase II of the Sugarbush system will start on June 21 and should take 3 weeks. Boardwalk on phase II was constructed by MCC crews last summer. Cory and west-end SCA board member Jeff Lynch were working on a partnership with the Tofte Town Board to finance the building of phase III so construction could contiue through the summer creating five miles of trail by summers end.

Road biking with the McCarthy family. . . .

by Olwe

Amanda (foreground) and sister Kate McCarthy (behind Amanda), friends Nick (back left) and Brendan (back right) just finished a road tour up and east of Grand Marais on 61. They’re riding Trek road bikes. The McCarthy family, of St. Paul, is staying in their cabin on Devil’s Track. This reporter informed them of the many opportunities for mountain and cross biking, too.

Sightings. . . .

Here’s a classic Gitane owned by Lenna Sobanja:

 

She got it here at the shop. This classic bike has a lugged cro-mo steel frame with down-tube shifters, center-pull caliper brakes, and a classic-style double chain ring crank set. We added cross-style brake levers to help the smaller rider.
