This year we have a brand new route and we are ecstatic to share with you! In 2019 MUP explores the central area of the Upper Peninsula. The Tour begins and ends in Manistique. A mid-tour layover day in Marquette will give you plenty of time to discover its treasures. From Munising, you can take a cruise to Pictured Rocks, or take a ferry to Grand Island to experience the rugged beauty on one of the Upper Peninsula's largest islands, which features miles of hiking and mountain bike trails.
Thank you for riding with the League of Michigan Bicyclists in 2019. Tour proceeds fund LMB's mission to make bicycling safe and convenient for everyone in Michigan. Proceeds support LMB's Micro-Grant Program to help fund on-the-ground advocacy work that promotes safe bicycling, especially among youth and underserved populations
Routes are subject to change.
