William Munger Trail Ride

Tuesday/Wednesday, August 6-7, 2019

This is a two-day ride from Hinckley to Carlton and back on the Willard Munger trail. Multiple distances are available. We start at the Hinckley Convention and Visitors Bureau at 9:30 AM.

On the first day, you may ride from Hinckley and stop at the Carlton AmericInn motel for 56 miles or continue on the trail toward Duluth before returning to the motel for a potential 90 miles.

The second day we start from the AmericInn at 8:30 and return to Hinckley for 56 miles. We’ll have lunch at the Lazy Moose restaurant in Moose Lake both days. The ride is fully sagged and has rest stops with snacks and refreshments each day in Finlayson and Mahtowa.

A group dinner is planned for Tuesday evening at a Carlton restaurant or the nearby Black Bear Casino. You can overnight Tuesday wherever you choose but to facilitate sagged baggage we recommend the AmericInn Carlton where we have a block of rooms reserved for the Twin Cities Bike Club. The neighboring Royal Pines Inn is a suitable alternative. To make reservations at the AmericInn in Carlton, please call 218-384-3535. Be sure to mention you are with Twin Cities Bike Club in order to get a first floor room, allowing easy access for wheeling your bike to your room for overnight storage. Overnight bags (limit 1 per rider) will be sagged to the AmericInn from Hinckley.

The trail’s website states that construction and repairs are planned for several locations during the summer. We will be checking the website for updates to share with riders. For more information contact Warren Samuelson at warsam11@aol.com, phone 651-398-3653.
The ride is listed as a B level ride but self-sufficient riders of all speeds are welcome. If you plan to attend, please notify Warren to assure we have sufficient refreshments and maps and to inform you of any final details. Be sure to include your cell phone number so we can communicate as needed during the ride. TCBC membership is required to participate in this ride.
