We invite you to join us for three days of scenic riding in northwestern Indiana (Michigan). Fall leaf color can be amazing in October. Granger is an unincorporated area of 11,000 residents surrounded by the cities of Mishawaka/South Bend. Michiana (as most refer to the area) is the home of Notre Dame University, and the former home of the historic Studebaker car manufacturer founded in 1852 manufacturing wagons, buggies, carriages and harnesses. Studebaker entered the automotive business in 1902 with electric vehicles and in 1904 with gasoline vehicles, all sold under the name "Studebaker Automobile Company". The Studebaker museum in Southbend is a must see while visiting.
Our headquarters for the weekend will be the Hampton Inn, Granger. On Friday we'll have an afternoon ride starting at the hotel. On Saturday, we'll ride to River St. Joe brewery, an organic farm for lunch, and then on Sunday we'll head northeast to Michigan lake country.
There is a nominal fee of $15 per person to cover insurance and other expenses.
