I like to support others who share a passion to get up close and personal with the lakes. I just read an article in the Duluth New Tribune about Kris McNeal and Zach Chase who will be circling all five lakes this year (to download PDF of the article click here). On bikes. Averaging 60 miles a day. Wow. You can follow their Big Water Bike trip online and I’ll link to their travels in the right column. They take off May 1 in Duluth and plan to return August 5th. They’ll be videotaping their journey along the way and will create a documentary. So wish them well, and perhaps I will run into them in early August as they head back to Duluth.
