The Bike Ride Around Mille Lacs (BRAML) is a 15-year tradition in the area. I had never biked it, but this year Cedar and I did the 12-mile ride. It made me think we’ll try the 35-miler next year, and maybe 70 after that.
It was a crystal clear fall day, brisk when we left at 7:30, but after a stop for hot chocolate, Cedar’s hands were warm. We waited near Wahkon and took a few pictures of people biking by. Beautiful ride on the Soo Line trail through fields and woods, nice people volunteering. I’ll definitely do it again.
