Sightings of Blue and Yellow Bikes

Blue and Yellow Bikes Sighted!

Have you spotted the blue and yellow bikes around Grand Marais? If you haven't yet, keep your eyes out for them this weekend during Fisherman's Picnic.

What are they?

These bright blue and yellow bikes have been placed on bike racks around town to call attention to the location of those racks, as well as to demonstrate the proper way to attach your bike. Each bike also sports a quote, such as

“Life is like riding a bicycle. To keep your balance, you must keep moving.” -Albert Einstein

Thank you to the City of Grand Marais and the Active Living Steering Committee for providing and highlighting the local bicycle infrastructure. Stay tuned - two new bicycle maintenance stations will soon be making their first appearance as well.
