Mesabi Trail


If you are coming from a distance and need lodging, consider staying in the Quad Cities area (Virginia, Eveleth, Mountain Iron, Gilbert) - being closer to the tour finish line is most convenient to take advantage of transportation options.

If Quad Cities lodging properties are booked - expand your search to the east to Biwabik & Hoyt the west to Chisholm & Hibbing. 


     FREE bike transportation from the finish line  to start locations on Friday evening. (see the event schedule for details).       

     FREE bus transportation for riders from the finish line to start locations on Saturday morning.  (see the event schedule for details).

REMEMBER - there is no transportation of riders or bicycles at the end of the day.
