A bike ride through Duluth, MN, and Superior / Oliver, WI - Part 1

Jacob Norlund - KC

Recommended Posts

I went on a long bike ride today, beginning from my family's store in West Duluth, taking 40th Ave. W. and 1st St. W. to the Ped / Bikeway on the Bong Bridge, crossed over to Superior, WI, took a highway out of Superior through a rural area to the tiny town of Oliver, WI, crossed over a much smaller bridge back into Duluth, and rode back to my store.

Most of these pictures were taken with autofocus/autoexposure, some while in motion (not necessarily recommended!), so the quality is not always the best.

Here are pictures, in the order of the ride:
