A MINNESOTAN IN CHINA Yangshuo: Grateful for Rain
Yes, that's right. I was grateful for the "bad" weather during my time there. Crazy, huh? Well, normally I'd wish for blue skies just like the next fella, but something about this place made the rain ... Posted on 6/16/12 at 8:32 AM
Local motorists will want to keep an extra-close eye out for bicyclists this weekend – some 130 of them to be exact. That’s how many cyclists are expected to take part in the annual Habitat 500 bike ride in support of Habitat for Humanity.
On Aug. 18, some 275 bicyclists are expected to descend upon the community of Cloquet for the start of the fifth annual Bicycling Across Minnesota (BAM) bike tour. The event will then traverse the cities of Duluth, Two Harbors, Virginia, Eveleth and Hibbing before returning to Cloquet on Aug. 21.
The Duluth Classic Stage Race will come to Cloquet on Monday – but instead of riding through downtown, 200 cyclists will race around Pinehurst Park.
Cloquet City Councilors Tuesday unanimously approved moving the race to the park this year, which was the idea of event organizer Tone Coughlin.
Tone Coughlin, CEC swim coach and owner of Twin Ports Events, gained approval Tuesday to bring hundreds of cyclists back to Cloquet on Memorial Day.
After discussion of some of the event’s first-year growing pains, Cloquet city councilors unanimously approved holding the Cloquet Criterium downtown on Monday, May 26. Cyclists will race around a one-mile loop for much of that day, resulting in road closures on sections of Cloquet Avenue, Carlton Avenue, 14th Street and Ninth Street.
