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.
(Say: fair - rules) - Metal or plastic caps that fit on the ends of cable housing. There are several types. Some are used to provide a perfect fit between the housing and stops the housing fit into on the frame. Others customize the end of the housing to fit in the brake and shift levers (but ferrules aren't used on certain components so always read the directions to be sure).
Pedal Faster, Not Harder – One mistake many new cyclists make is trying to get fit by pushing a hard gear. While there’s a place for this type of (strength) training in cycling, most new cyclists are better off working on cardiovascular fitness, which burns calories, builds the heart and lungs and increases pedaling power. To do this, try shifting into an easier gear and rev your pedals (aim for 90 revolutions per minute, counted on one leg). Riding this way will get you in shape faster and prevent the possibility of knee injury, which comes from pushing a too-hard gear.
