Central Minnesota’s congenial secret

We’re in Dalbo, Minnesota, and earlier today our route leaders mentioned tonight may be a treat. We showed up at The Bicycle Bunkhouse, a barn-turned hostel for touring cyclists. Donn and Sherry Olsen are the couple responsible for building and maintaining it, and Bike the US for MS presented them this year’s Dymond Award for outstanding hospitality!

What it's like inside.

The Adventure Cyclists Bunkhouse harbors such an awesome feeling of community, and the Olsens have been so kind to us. It seems they don’t see the bunkhouse as something outstanding they went out of their way to do, but something they felt obligated to do. The bunkhouse is truly one-of-a-kind.
