BIKING IN NEVIS, MN

Central Minnesota is a paradise for outdoor thrill seekers. Bikers, in particular, have plenty of roads to explore to their heart's content as they cruise down the fresh asphalt. Mountain bikers, motorcyclists, and four wheeler riders all have paths they can ride down. Not only will you view jaw-dropping scenery, but you will have opportunities to become entwined with rural Minnesotan culture and understand what makes the state so special.

This article will be sorted based on the type of ride you are bringing to the resort. You'll learn how to prepare for your adventure and what the top trails are for each of the iron steeds. 
Bikes
Few activities are more calming and fun than a bike ride. You'll fly across bridges, zip through forests, and capture the journey through pictures along the way.

How to Prepare for a Bike Ride
While Minnesota nature is beautiful, you have to keep in mind that many of the trails and bike paths are in the middle of nowhere. You won't be passing a lot of towns, and sometimes the ride can pass through areas where it is easy to get lost. You need to be prepared.

Water and Snacks: It's also important to stay hydrated and nourished when off-roading.

First Aid Kit: Preparing is all about the unexpected. First aid kits contain bandages, alcohol swabs, and other such materials in case something happens.

Bug Spray and Sunscreen: Anytime you plan on being outside for an extended period of time, you should be wearing bug spray and sunscreen. Minnesota is a humid state, and this attracts mosquitoes among other bugs. While bicycles move fast, they may not be fast enough to escape bug bites. This is something to keep in mind.
