Winona is a hub for road biking and mountain biking in southeast Minnesota. The bluffs that surround the Winona provide challenging hills for road bicyclists and the Holzinger trails within the city provide over 10 miles of single-track riding for mountain bikers. In addition, because a majority of the City rests on a relatively flat sandbar, Winona is a friendly city for bicyclists of all skill levels.
