Enjoy the breathtaking scenery and heartwarming hospitality of the Brainerd Lakes Area. Each season offers different views of the beautiful lakes area. As the snow starts melting each spring you will hear thewater in our lakes and rivers begin to flow, the birds will begin to chirp and the flowers and trees will begin to bud. Summers will offer the beauties of bright blue skies and lakes, and hues of lush green trees. Autumn provides bikers the experience of riding the trails with amazing views of the radiant Minnesota fall colors. Maps are available at Brainerd Area Bike Maps.
Also known as a "straight block," this is a cassette or freewheel on which every cog is one tooth larger than the preceding one (as you shift up the cassette to larger sprockets).
Consider Comfort When Inflating Road Tires - Don't always inflate road tires to the maximum pressure written on the tire label. Roads in the real world aren't billiard-table smooth. The jarring effect of bumpy pavement on over-inflated tires robs energy and makes for a bone-rattling ride. Judiciously inflated tires will roll over bumpy roads smoother and faster and get you home without shaking loose your dental work. You can go with higher pressures on ultra-smooth roads and when maximum speed is needed, such as in a time-trial or triathlon. But, stay at the lower end of the pressure zone for comfort on average to rough roads.
