The MS 150 annual bike ride fundraiser is passing through North Branch this weekend-- June 8, 9 and 10. Riders will be on-the-road through North Branch, heading southbound into Wyoming and Forest Lake to finish at Century College in the White Bear Lake area, on Saturday.
And, later this month during North Branch’s Mid-summer Days; the former “Klobuchar Ride” now called the Tour of Minnesota, is coming through North Branch June 17 with campgrounds based at the high school.
This tour leaves North Branch for Moose Lake June 18, then to Superior, where everybody gets a day of rest at Superior, Wisconsin. Then it’s on to Danbury and St Croix Falls...and back into the east side of Chisago County to finish in Stillwater June 23.
