The Kraus-Anderson Bike Duluth Festival has rolled into town. Expanded from a two to three day event it all kicked off Friday in top gear fashion opening up with downhill chainless races at Spirit Mountain.

“I’ve been doing this event for about the last six years and last year we add this chainless downhill event to it, which is really fun,” cyclist Tom Miller said. He describes it as “kind of a low key costume contest.”

Emerging as one of the region’s top mountain bike showcases the festival has already brought in around 400 riders.

The cycling is also for a cause. Over $310,000 have already been raised for Cyclists of Gitchee Gumee Shores (COGGS) and Harbor Town Rotary.

The fun continues through Sunday. For more information on festival events, click here.
