On Being Bicycle Friendly

November is here and my office window is still open…a little bit! As snow is in the forecast biking is not in my near future. Yes, I’m a fair-weather-biker. There are many here who are snow-bicyclists and each year we see more fat-tire bikes than the previous year. Although the trails turn to snowmobilers and sitings of bicyclists are few and far between, it’s the perfect time for our community to be planning and preparing for bike enthusiasts.

We're thrilled that Fergus Falls is on your agenda for tourism, business or a move! Our slogan “Find Us, Lose Yourself!” challenges and invites you to come to Fergus Falls.  Relax, unwind and enjoy a refreshing environment that will leave you ready to return to everyday life invigorated and ready to go.


The people who live and work here are proud of our community and are always eager to roll out the red carpet for visitors. We think you'll find that the friendly nature of our citizens - together with tremendous community assets - will leave you with a fabulous experience. Fergus Falls is located only 2½ hours northwest of Minneapolis-Saint Paul, and an hour southeast of Fargo Moorhead. We're right off I-94 with five exits into our thriving community.


See you Soon!
