Bike the mountain trails

The Lutsen 99er movement continues, high above the shores of beautiful Lake Superior. This 99-mile course (69-, 45- and 29-mile options also offered) takes advantage of the scenery and topography of Minnesota’s North Shore.

We will start at Superior National Golf Course, in Minnesota’s Sawtooth Mountains overlooking majestic Lake Superior, as we begin a fantastic Category 3 climb. Once over the ridgeline, the course takes advantage of the glacially sculpted terrain, rolling hills, and numerous lakes and streams at the southern range of the Boreal Forest. You will be riding on sections of road and trail that see as much moose traffic as people traffic at any given time.

Little Niner Kid Races will also be held, make the Lutsen 99er a family affair!
