Enjoy a family bike ride on the "surrey" bike-a four-wheeled bike that has bench seats and extra seating for small children-and take in the fall colors while you spend your fall vacation at Kavanaugh's Resort, a classic Minnesota resort on Sylvan Lake near Brainerd, Minnesota.

Kavanaugh's is the new Brainerd Lakes location for Wheel Fun Rentals, a St. Cloud-based company that rents bike equipment in select Minnesota resort locations. In addition to mountain bikes, kid's bikes, and three-speed "nostalgic" bikes, Kavanaugh's has the "surrey"-which allows families to sit together and pedal their way around seven miles of the East Gull Lake Trail. The resort itself has more than 4,000 feet of paved trail within their property which is open to guests for nature viewing, birding, walking and biking.

One of the newest Minnesota bike trails, the East Gull Lake Trail has seven miles that have been paved with several more set to be completed in the near future. The trail winds around East Gull Lake, Sylvan Lake and several championship golf courses. As a MN resort, Kavanaugh's is family-owned and operated and provides modern lake lodging with a full array of amenities.

"We want our guests to enjoy the bike trail and we also thought that the "surrey" bike was a great feature to add-it's new to our area and we think families will have fun being able to sit together and enjoy the experience of nature, the scenic lake views, and still know they're getting some great exercise," says John Kavanaugh, general manager of the resort and co-owner with his three brothers.

The bikes can be rented hourly, daily or weekly.

To celebrate the autumn season, Kavanaugh's is offering a fall special. In September, guests who book three nights at regular price can get up to two more additional nights at half-price. In October, those who book two nights at regular price can get up to two additional nights at half-price.

"The autumn is a beautiful time to explore and enjoy the Northwoods. It's colorful, peaceful and a great time to get away for a fall vacation," John Kavanaugh says. "Now with our bike rentals, our guests can take full advantage of their time here."
