Bayfield County is on my list of places to return to this summer and thanks to mi amigo, Gary Crandall, I’m headed up to ride the Superior Vistas Bike Tour in Washburn, WI. The date of the event is Saturday, June 25th, 2022.
Gary shared the event on facebook, so I took a look because Bayfield County is on my radar. I scrolled down and saw the magic words…NEW in 2022 Fat Bike Routes!
The Fat Bike Routes.
Fat Bike Route #1: The Long Lake/Beaver Pond Route starts at The Long Lake parking lot 8 miles west of Washburn off of Wannebo Road (F.R. 251). This 12.4 mile route is recommended for beginner to intermediate riders and possibly mtn. bike riders. This route is almost entirely on hard packed forest roads including some minor hills. Some deep sand may occur. The route includes an active beaver pond and ( of course ) a welcome dip in Long Lake after the ride.
Fat Bike Route #2: Mt. Valhalla Fire Tower / Sunbowl Overlooks Route starts at the parking lot at Mt. Valhalla Recreation Area, 8 miles west of Washburn on County Highway C. This 8.8 mile route is recommended for intermediate to advanced riders. Fat bikes ONLY. No mtn. bikes, because of the occasional deep sand. The challenging route includes steep hills, hard – packed and sandy forest roads and grass – covered trails. Route highlights include vistas from the Fire Tower and from the top of the Sun Bowl trail , (a remnant of Ice Age glaciation).
