    coming to fond du lac / twin cities in july

    i'm originally from fond du lac and remember riding new fane trails when i was 10 years old or so (15 years back). i now living in florida and got back into biking but am anxious to try out some trails back home.

    i will be in fond du lac for a couple days and then over in the twin cities. i'm planing to ship my ibis up and ride while i'm there.

    best trails within an hour of fond du lac? i love technical fast singletrack.

    also, when i'm over in st. paul, mn, best trail within 30 minutes or so of the city?

    maybe i'll even run into some of you guys while i'm out there.

    keep an eye open for me!

    Trails

    Greenbush and New Fane both have new singletrack trail systems. Greenbush has close to 10 miles of rocky, rooty, and rollercoaster trail. New Fane as about 6 miles and is a little tamer but still fun.

    Welcome Back

    Bring the rest of your chainrings when you ride Greenbush or New Fane.
    A 34-48 double is good a setup.

    Too Low

    Its fine if you just like to cruise around slow.

    I ride full rigid with a 46-36-24 and 11-26 in the northen Kettles and never use the 24T granny.

    There's sections of Greenbush and New Fane that are easy to spin out the 46-11 combo.

    St. Paul means you'll be riding Battle Creek. This is good. Better are Lebanon Hills and Murphy Hanrehan. They are both in the South Metro. On the way though is Levis Trow Mound. You CANNOT pass that up.
    Just a regular guy.

    Chime Lebanon and Murphy for the cities. Also, Greenbush for Fondy. Along the drive to the cities are both Standing Rocks (stevens point) and Levis-Trow (off 94). I would highly recommend getting up early and fitting both into your schedule on the way if you're up for mixing in 30'ish miles of track with your drive.

    ditto for Levis Trow, Lebanon, and Murphy. Also, think about Hillside Park in Elk River MN (about 30 mins. outside of the center-ish). Here is a wiki for the cities.
