I don’t title my posts “Workout Wednesday: Bike to Walker” but I do love sharing what kind of workouts I’ve done!
Last weekend 17 women biked from Brainerd, MN to Walker, MN, on 62 miles of gorgeous paved trail. Because I’m crazy I’m one of the 5 women who biked an extra 62 miles from Walker back to Brainerd on Sunday.We took numerous rest stops on the way up. Biggest shout out to Pine River which had a brand new bike service station! The entire trip was filled with gorgeous views. However the last 8 miles were a super struggle for me. Those miles included the only hills on the path.
We got in at 3 pm just before the sky opened up with rain. We stayed at Chase on the Lake, and took full advantage of their hot tub, sauna and pool. We ate dinner at Cafe Zona Rosa (mexican), which had the best pitcher of margaritas! I was at a table of 5 people and we somehow managed to finish two pitchers. It fortified us before we went to the Legion to work on our dance moves. (see below). We were up a little past midnight, ate breakfast at 8 am, and got packed up and back on the road!
We stopped for scones at the Stonehouse Coffee and Roastery in Nisswa both on the way to and from Walker. If you come visit me there is a 100% chance that I’m going to make you do the short bike ride from Brainerd to Nisswa to get scones. Delicious.
