Many cities vie for having the best in-town mountain biking but Duluth, MN, may soon lay legitimate claim to the title. Working with IMBA chapter the Cyclists of Gitchie Gumee Shores (COGGS) and Midwest Regional Director Hansi Johnson, Trail Solutions is helping to develop both the Duluth Traverse and the gravity trails at Spirit Mountain, giving residents immediate access to high-quality riding.
