Alexandria, christened the "Birthplace of America," is home to Big Ole, the Viking. This statue that welcomes those who come to the Central Lakes Community stands at the trailhead. A destination with more than 200 lakes, Alexandria offers riders the option of using the bike trail or roads that wobble around a series of waterways. The route begins by taking you up along Le Homme Dieu Lake to Carlos—the lake, state park, and town. Here you will see the well-preserved timber stands that depict the area before the lake region was developed. Circling to the south around many glacier-formed pristine lakes, take a break in the town of Osakis. After crossing the interstate, the route pivots to the west over rolling hills, visiting several more villages as you tour the central lakes region.
