Cyclists of Gitchee Gumee Shores (COGGS) works to improve cycling opportunities for Twin Ports residents. It is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization created in 1994 after the Superior Bikers and the North Star Bike Club combined and is a chapter of the International Mountain Biking Association (IMBA). It maintains over 30 miles of multi-use, single-track trail in Duluth and hosts regular group rides throughout the area. COGGS has been an integral partner in planning the KA Bike Duluth Festival and will receive half of the event proceeds.
The Gary New Duluth Recreation Area, “The GND REC,” is dedicated to providing a place to be used by members of the community for social, cultural, learning and recreational purposes. That’s why this year, the KA Bike Duluth Festival is proud to partner with this organization. Their commitment to promoting positive actions through physical, recreational, social and environmental activities has made a true impact on the local community. Overlap in mission and values have made The GND REC an easy choice as this year’s beneficiary.
