Cuyuna's winter bike trail

             Working your way up a long, snowy hill, sailing down the other side, negotiating around birch trees and rocks, and then stopping to take in the beauties of winter aren’t thrills limited to cross country skiers only.

            Now, fat tire mountain bikers are enjoying the wilds of winter in greater numbers, thanks to bike innovations and specially-groomed trails at places like the Sagamore Unit of the Cuyuna Country Recreation Area near Crosby.

A Biking Kind of Love

By Pamela Eyden - Outdoor Writer

Couples have their differences.  But Sid and Sig Scheurle share one big passion — exploring new and familiar places by bicycle.

The Winona couple met on the RAGBRAI (Register’s Annual Great Bike Ride Across Iowa) 10 years ago. Sid had done the tour with her friends many times. Sig was a first-timer. They married the next December with their grown children gathered around and have been riding together ever since. Together they bike 3,000 to 3,500 miles every year.

“Biking is how we met, and it’s most of our recreation together,” Sid said.
