This bicycle tour includes the beautiful rolling hills and windswept dunes of Leelanau, the expansive wooded shoreline of Torch Lake, miles and miles of magnificent beaches along Lake Michigan’s eastern shore and charming Charlevoix and historic Mackinac Island. Set in the northwestern corner of Michigan’s Lower Peninsula, this bicycle tour focuses initially on the Leelanau Peninsula, acclaimed as the “cherry capital of the world.”  From there we travel north along rolling hills and sandy beaches to the tip of the lower peninsula.  A ferry ride takes us to the unique island of Mackinac, where vehicles are banned and bikes are plentiful.
