Deep in the woods north of Akeley, 120 dirt bike riders tested their endurance Sunday on a grueling path no wider than a foot in places.


The 50-mile ride is one of two annually sponsored by ARMCA, the acronym for the nonprofit Amateur Riders Motorcycle Association. It is chartered as District 23 (Minnesota) of the American Motorcyclist Association.

ARMCA promotes dirt bike riding and the development of public trails.
