Lake Mille Lacs.Great motorcycle rides.


Head to Lake Mille Lacs for great motorcycle rides with friends, your motorcycle clubs, or even solo motorcycle road trips. The big lake in the heart of the state is 14 miles across and 18 miles long and is encircled with 75 miles of winding, scenic roads with friendly towns, events, and places to explore along the way.

From spring’s first green to fall’s last color blast, the highways and byways of Lake Mille Lacs are an enjoyable feast for the senses when you’re riding a motorcycle. You’ll discover beaches, parks, and off-the-beaten-path adventures.


Check out the events calendar and you’ll discover motorcycle rides to benefit a worthy cause. While you enjoy being on the road in a way that is only possible on a motorcycle, you can also celebrate camaraderie, food, music, and fun.
