Now that summer is soon here and many traditional outdoor activities open up post-COVID-19, I have a big decision to make. With my new e-bike, where should I go for my first out-of-town weekend bike getaway? For me, one favorite is Albert Lea, Minnesota, offering a beautiful bike route around Fountain Lake, then connecting to the Blazing Star State Trail. Another option is to follow one of the routes from the annual bike ride called Rock n’ Roll the Lakes. Normally scheduled in June, the events bike routes can offer cyclists many fun, scenic Southern Minnesota tour options for that #NextBikeAdventure.
