The League of Michigan Bicyclists host bike tours each summer that make driving up north worth your driving time. We’d always wanted to see more of the Upper Peninsula so we signed up and made it happen.
It was a circular bike tour that explored highlights of the UP including Tahquamenon Falls, the Soo Locks, beautiful lighthouses and martime museums, a ferry over to Macinac Island for the day and a bike ride over to Canada. Meals and camping space were provided mostly at local schools happy to host a group of cyclists as a fund raiser for sports programs. Some of the schools were teeny tiny.
