So after the fourth? Don't matter to me. Actually my dad has that off too, might be better

Day 1*- riding up to harbor springs and/or Petoskey
Day 2 - riding the tunnel of trees, bridge and back, back through the tunnel. Also stopping for sight seeing, pictures, dinning...
Day 3- coming home

Do we go Friday Saturday Sunday? Or Saturday Sunday Monday?

That's the plan, if anyone wants picked up in the way up, we can try to work something out

Once across the bridge into The Upper Peninsula of Michigan, Tahquamenon Falls is not too far away. Just adding a little bit more of places I have enjoyed. Please link below:



Also, Leggs Inn is a good place for eats. However, if you time it wrong (weekends at lunch time) it could be a long wait before you are served. Hundreds of bikers converge. Please see link below:


If you have not been on Mackinaw Island, this is certainly worth a ferry ride to. Great fudge and ice cream. Bring your cameras and plan an 8 mile rental bike ride around the island. This is something that all should do once.

I should be the PR director for the State. I am not allowed to post links until I get 15 posts. Sorry, but I will edit this post.

Thanks

Tips, dates are still up in the air. Something we have to figure out. And rural king has monkey butt powder.

Simba, can all that be done in one day? I don't know if my ass can do a bicycle for 8 miles, could ride a donkey! Lol I need to get my phone charger hooked up to my bike, gps, camera, and uhh a phone.ive I looked at leggs inn, sounds ds good to me. So how many people we got? Once we have for sure date I will make a new thread with all the concrete information...

I've never been up there it's all new to me

The Island requires pretty much a whole day in itself. Its got too much to see and photograph and eat and ride to rush it. Motorized bikes and vehicles not allowed. Many either ferry their own bicycles or rent some crappy ones on the island. Plan to spend at a minimum about $100 per person for ferry, rentals, eats. So if time is limited I would pass on this for a day when nothing else is planned. You can also skip the bicycle ride and do as most---just walk around and eat and photograph.

The Falls are a good motorcycle ride to and a good to see. But do not expect Niagara Falls.

More after the 15 post.

I think I will be able to post links and pictures after this post. I will post my thought re: this ride but will probably not be able to join you guys/gals on this trip as I do not have days off during the days when most can do it.
