Duluth, MN is recognized by the International Mountain Bicycling Association (IMBA) with a Gold-Level Ride Center designation. Cycling at Lake Superior College takes advantage of the 100+ miles of beautiful IMBA certified Gold-Level trails right in our backyards. Thanks to the vision of the Cyclists of Gitchee Gumee Shores (COGGS) and the City of Duluth, the Duluth Traverse (DT) interconnects all of the mountain bike trails and completely traverses the entire length of the City of Duluth. The easily accessible and extensive trails in Duluth offer great variety and difficulty, whether you’re a beginner or expert.
