The Awesome Avidors Bus and Bike Trip along the Paul Bunyan Trail

The awesome Avidors have returned from their Jefferson Lines bus and Brompton bike adventures to Bemidji and Brainerd. Over the course of a week, Ken and Roberta saw Paul Bunyan and Babe the Blue Ox, relaxed at the many great establishments along the bike trail, and sketched everyday scenes from the northland. Their route is detailed in this great map sketched by Ken (below).

Ken and Roberta Avidor were interviewed on KB101 radio in Bemidji, and by Lakeland News Center. It was extremely windy when their TV reporter met up with the Avidors, but Ken and Roberta still managed to sketch on the shores of Leech Lake. Click to view the full news report.


You can read all the details about the Avidor’s adventures from Bemidji to Brainerd on their travel blog. Don’t forget to read Part 2 also!
