The Michigander Bicycle Tour July 16-23, 2016

Every July, Ride the Best Bike Tour in Michigan
Named one of the “Top 10 Multi-Day Rides in America” by Bicycling Magazine, The Michigander combines beautiful trails, Great Lakes beaches, lighthouses, rivers, virgin white pines, and a healthy serving of brewpubs. It’s a perfect Pure Michigan route.

The 2016 Michigander is offers three tour options; 2-Day Tour, 6-Day Tour or 8-day Tour which combines both the 2-Day and 6-Day Tours. Routes feature a mix of paved and crushed limestone surfaced trails and roads, and on occasion (if necessary) short jaunts on dirt roads and or unpaved trails. The 2-Day Michigander is designed to be a casual, easy ride up to 30-35 miles each day. It starts and finishes in the same town, so those that prefer a shorter ride can simply turn back at any time. The 6-Day Tour moves upwards of 50-60 miles a day and moves from town to town. Those that do the 8-Day Tour often consider the 2-Day Tour as a good warm up to the 6-Day Tour.
The Michigander is in its 25th year!
