We have to be in Winnipeg on August 3, 2013. We have been invited to go fishing in Minnesota a week later. I am considering a ride from Winnipeg to Leech Lake (mid) Minnesota. It looks doable on the map - about 40 miles per day on the flat. It goes through the 'big bog'!
My concern is heat, bugs and traffic - in about that order. I've been to Winnipeg once in my life, about thirty years ago, so I have no frame of reference. I only want to do the ride if it would be fun. I'd appreciate any comments or advice about the proposed ride.
