BIKE! Atikokan - Steep Rock Iron Range
The bike tour is still a GO! - Weather is predicting cloudy, drizzle but we are going to ride anyway...dress in layers and bring a shell jacket.
10 am central -Saturday Oct 5th 2019
Fairly easy but with loose gravel and a few fairly long gradual hills.
25 km around an abandoned iron ore open pit that has a mix of red dirt and green pines from mother earth reclaiming the land. Expect rich mining history and a mix of fresh water treed lakes on gravel and dirt roads.
For those that are looking for more, there are a labyrinth of technical single track for additional thrills.
Free tent camping right at the trail-head if weather permits, additional costs for electrical
