13th Annual Ride with Jim June 6

Posted by Doug Shidell, June 1st, 2010

The 13th annual Ride with Jim, Congressman Jim Oberstar, on the Paul Bunyan Trail will be held June 6th starting at the Northland Arboretum in Baxter/Brainerd, Minnesota, at 9 a.m. There will be a 28 mile ride that will include the dedication of a new trail segment. Everyone is welcome. The ride is free.

Congressman Oberstar is the chair of the U.S. House of Representatives Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure. It is widely acknowledged that he has done more to promote the funding and development of bicycling infrastructure and programs than any other member of congress in the past decades. This is not a campaign event. Rather, it is an in district celebration promoted by the Paul Bunyan Trail Association to honor his efforts and show off the work that has been by DNR, Mn/DOT and the cities of Brainerd and Baxter.
