Bike Duluth Festival 2021
The seventh annual Bike Duluth Festival features racers participating in cross country, trail, enduro and downhill events. The festival runs Aug. 6-8 and includes youth activities, music, a silent auction, and food and beverage venders — all within the Expo Village. New this year is the Friday night Chainless Downhill race, along with Saturday’s Partial Exposure (15-mile) and Northern Exposure (30-mile) trail races.
The event is presented by Kraus-Anderson Community Foundation, along with expo sponsor Ski Hut, venue partner Spirit Mountain, timing partner Duluth Timing & Events, marketing partner Hailey Sault; and the event’s beneficiaries, Cyclists of Gitchee Gumee Shores and Harbortown Rotary.
