Overland Route To the Boundary Water / by Ben Weaver

I was invited to perform at a celebration to welcome my friends Dave and Amy Freeman back from their year in the wilderness to protect the Boundary Waters from proposed sulfide copper mines in partnership with the Campaign to Save the Boundary Waters.  In order to get to Ely I planned an overland ride from Two Harbors, MN in which I rode less than 10 miles of paved road through the Superior National Forest. Read the ride story and see the route via the Salsa Cycles Black River page.
