Much like our Deerwood Good route, Miner 39er road cycling route starts and ends at Cykel in Ironton. You’ll start your ride weaving through the backroads of Ironton to the City of City of Deerwood and the south shore of Serpent Lake From there you’ll continue across State Highway 6, taking you past Clearwater Lake, Nokay Lake, and Eagle Lake, then back towards Ironton past Wolf Lake before looping back for the northern half of the route.
Upon returning to Cykel, you’ll begin the second half of the Miner 39er (the Locals Lunch Loop). You’ll ride north of the City of Ironton and past the Cuyuna Country State Recreation Area on Crow Wing County Highway 30. Along the way, you’ll pass the mining town of Trommald and even the ghost town of Manganese. About 6.5 miles into the ride, you’ll cycle past the Milford Memorial Mine Memorial (just before crossing State Highway 6).
Miner 39er is a perfect road ride for early spring, late fall, and any day that the Cuyuna mountain bike trails are temporarily closed due to moisture or the Minnesota Rifle Deer Hunting Season.
Enjoy it on a road bike, a gravel bike, a mountain bike, or a fat bike.
