City-dwelling mountain bikers all need the same thing-a place to ride. Lucky for us, Minneapolis and St. Paul are loaded with top shelf trails for the knobby-tired fan, like quiet cruises along the river flats, white-knuckle singletrack descents, and that wilderness feeling in the area's city parks.

Wisconsin's North Country is a special place, and the heart of it all is the Chequamegon National Forest region, a land of enchanting forests of hill and dale, whispering streams and tranquil lakes. Braided herin are several hundred miles of the best mountain biking in the country.
