Norpine Fat Bike Classic
Norpine Fat Bike Classic

Continue the tradition – ride the Norpine Fat Bike Classic in 2022! Experience fat biking on the Norpine Trails in Lutsen. Ride through stands of old growth cedars on Pisten Bully groomed trails while overlooking Lake Superior – winter riding doesn’t get better than this!

The Norpine Fat Bike Classic is presented by the Superior Cycling Association with the proceeds going to the Norpine Trail Association and the Superior Cycling Association to assist each organization in maintaining the highest quality trails in Cook County that we all like to ride.

The Superior Cycling Association has built and maintains 35 miles of purpose-built mountain bike trails in Cook County, including the new Jackpot and High Climber trails, which connect Britton Peak trails to Lutsen Mountains. The Norpine Trail Association provides Pisten Bully groomed winter fat bike trails on one of the best winter bike trails on the North Shore.

Date Night at the Winery

North Shore Winery | Lutsen

Join us for Date Night at the Winery! We are open late on Thursdays, so grab your date and come down to the Winery for music from 6-8 p.m.
Our indoor seating is limited, so please make a reservation or give us a call at (218) 481-9280.

Music by Gordon Thorne. Gordon Thorne picked up a guitar 30 years ago and hasn’t put it down since. He spent years mining early American blues and jazz, blending them with his own style, and serves up what he calls, “the modern sounds of yesterday – today”. Known as the meanest fingerpicker in Northern Minnesota, it is where he spends his time working, raising kids, and playing a little guitar.
