Letsbikemqt, with the Marquette County Convention and Visitor’s Bureau are heading for the Windy City to chat up biking with anyone interested in awesome rides. We’ll have a booth at the Chicago Travel and Adventure Show this Saturday and Sunday, January 26 and 27th, 2013. This two day event at the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center in Rosemont, Illinois is the largest travel show in the MidWest and offers exhibitors from all over the world.
We’re hoping to spread the message about how great it is to ride Marquette on a hybrid, road, mountain, cross or fat bike. Come visit the Marquette County Convention and Visitor’s Bureau booth at the show for a free shirt. Know a friend in Chicago? Tell them to come to our booth and see how great the trails look and feel. Our multimedia presentation offers a bit of everything and we’re looking forward to telling people about the pristine wilderness, constant trail building, great paved bike paths and rolling road ride routes.
As snow bike events pop up around the Upper Peninsula this winter, the Northern Michigan University Nordic Ski and Cross Country Teams are offering both a ski and snow bike race, combining the best of both winter sports.

Competitors can race in the Noon Cross Country Ski Race (18k) and then the snow bike race (also 18 k) at 4 p.m. for a chance to win the combined race awards. Prizes will also be given out to the overall top three men and women in both the ski and bike races, as well as age group winners in those events.
