BACKGROUND

COGGS was started in 1994 when the Superior Bikers and the North Star Bike Club combined. In 2011 COGGS became a chapter of the International Mountain Bicycling Association (IMBA), an organization which has guided us forward through sustainable trail building use and development, and trail advocacy within the greater Duluth, MN community.
