Loop ride, Biwabik to Silver Bay & Two Harbors, Minnesota

Looking for a short, one day, loop ride, while staying at a place in Biwabik MN, we choose this ride from a local rider map made available for visitors.

This ride totaled 3.5 hours, 170 miles.

This was a relaxing run, eastward, toward Lake Superior. We would ride to Silver Bay, then turn south on US61 to Two Harbors, before heading back to Biwabik.  We had started this ride around 9am. This ended up putting us in Silver Bay around 10:30am where we were able to see the low laying clouds still sitting on the lake. Amazing.

The ride on US61 was a little congested even though we planned and rode this ride on a weekday. Many travelers seek this area for it’s amazing views of the lake and the lighthouses that dot the shore.

Additional 2 hours well worth riding.

We enjoyed this ride. It was just enough what we were looking for.  However, if you have more time, adding an additional 2 hours, by continuing to Duluth, then riding county highway 4 back to Biwabik would be a great ride too. We have later rode this route and found county highway 4 amazing, as well as Duluth is nice place to visit. (https://goo.gl/maps/hscPzq5gv1q)
