This is a perfect self-guided adventure for those looking for a chill, approachable ride, including groups, families, and inexperienced riders!
Our most popular route along Lake Superior, this adventure route rides only on the brand new paved section of Gitchi Gami from our Electric Trails rental kiosk in Grand Marais. This booking comes with 2hours of rental time, providing you with enough time to let you explore a bit around the beach area, and ride back into Grand Marais to check out the sites there on your Super73.
Discover the beauty of the shores of Lake Superior as you ride alongside the lake. Feel the breeze and listen to the waves crash into the rocky cliffs as you gaze out into the endless big lake. Along the way, stop to take a selfy at one of the waterfalls, and view the wildflowers and wildlife as you make your way to Cut Face Creek park area.
The Cut Face Creek area has restrooms and a picnic area to relax or have some refreshments that you bring along. Wander along the beach and take it all in before returning back to Grand Marais. If you’re not ready to end your ride, let us know you want to extend your rental by the hour.

From our rental kiosk, hop right onto the Gitchi Gami and enjoy a chill ride down to Cut Face Creek. While there, check out the beach, have a picnic or whatever you enjoy doing!
Cruise back up towards our rental kiosk to return your Super73, or keep on riding up into Grand Marais by extending your rental!
eBiking takes a lot of the physicality out of biking and can be much easier for some riders. For those new to eBiking, we recommend you test it out in the parking lot to make sure you are comfortable and choose low-difficulty routes.
This chill ride on the Gitchi Gami is a fully paved route and great for inexperienced and first-time eBikers!
We do not recommend offroad routes and difficult routes for those with limited eBike or biking experience.
It keeps fairly cool on the North Shore, so generally, pants and long sleeves are recommended. They also help with any bugs or mosquitos which might be around.
We provide helmets and safety glasses, so you are covered there — but you may want to bring sunglasses if it’s a sunny day.
This route stays quite dry, so you’re unlikely to deal with much water. So, in this case wearing shoes, hiking boots, crocs, or other footwear is fine — just make sure to have enough warmth if it’s going to be on the colder side!
Please inform us of your cancelation as soon as possible so we can issue you a full refund
In case of rain or wet conditions, we are unable to rent out ebikes out of safety concerns, in which case we can push back your rental to a later time or issue a refund
It’s an adventure, things happen! If something goes wrong with your eBike or someone get hurt or lost, we recommend relying on your route map to get to a safe place and call us for assistance. We have the ability to come to help you out and haul your eBike back in case of an issue.
For each route, we remark how good the cell phone coverage is. This route has consistent cell coverage so getting in touch with us should not be an issue in case there is a problem. For back-woods riding in Superior National, we supply satellite phones to people so they can reach out in case there is an issue.
Our Super73 eBikes are rated as Class II eBikes which is compliant with riding State Trails such as the Gitchi Gami. Their max speed is 22 MPH at full throttle.
You are not required to peddle but encouraged to — that’s part of the fun! The eBikes have a throttle that provides power to the tires, independent of peddling.
For each route, we’ve made sure you can ride the entire distance with just the battery.
The North Shore is teaming with wildlife. We’ve encountered everything from Wolves, Deer, Moose, Bear Beavers, Lynx, and a variety of bird species — you name it. The wildlife you will encounter depends largely on the routes you ride and just luck of the draw.
As a general rule of thumb, the more out in the woods you are, the more likely you are to see the rare wildlife.. but that’s not to say you won’t come across wildlife near the Gitchi Gami.
We mark important points of interest on each route within the RideWithGPS map. This includes restrooms, places to get water, restaurants, and so forth.
For rides along the Gitchi Gami there are several places to stop if you need.
