This is simply a great day out on the bike for riders who like the idea of going a bit farther afield. Taking in the destinations of Elmhirst’s Resort on Rice Lake, historic sites at Hope Mill and Lang Village as well as the village of Hastings, this route has all the makings of a good daycation. Along the way riders can stop to take in the many sights and stop for a nice lunch at Elmhirst’s Resort or Hastings. Rather than a route to rush through, this is a route so slowly savor.
For those who like the idea of dabbling in the world of bikepacking, this is a great route to start with. Packing just the basics for a night in a hotel, riders can spend the night at Elmhirst’s, enjoy dinner at the restaurant and relax by the shores of Rice Lake before finishing the route the next day.
