Friday night (Aug 25th) is the Pines Motel in St. Ignace. I reserved the 5 doubles. There’s still some singles left (906) 643-9250, or call the Cedars across the street for a double (906) 643-9578
For Saturday Night (Grand Marais, MI):
Trying something different this year. I rented out some rooms at the Superior Hotel (906-494-2539), which is right next the two pubs. Yes, there’s a second bar in town now! I got the only two double bed rooms ($45), and a bunk room with 4 beds ($50). These are shared bath rooms upstairs.
Owner was super cool with having a group up, and said there is a fire pit outside for us. He even offered up a wheel chair and his mother’s walker to get people back from the pub. 🙂 There are some single bed rooms available for $40/night too. Book now if you want one!
If this isn’t your style, then the North Shore Lodge (906-494-2361) still has 3 double rooms left ($89), but better book now!July 14, 2017 at 7:16 pm #12927

Shannon and I have each reserved single rooms at the Pines for Friday night.
As Shannon said on the Messenger Forum “We want to be where all the cool kids are”.
Looking forward to MORE SAND……..(since I have already mastered the “underwater riding skill”)July 21, 2017 at 6:32 pm #12962
Questions for those who have done this route before,
– how much trail riding is done on Sunday from Grand Marais back to St Ignace?
– do guys stay another night in St Ignace or bail and go home on Sunday?

I just reserved a room at Superior Hotel for Saturday. They said that they only have one room left.July 25, 2017 at 4:06 pm #12971
I called over the weekend and snagged a room at Superior too for Saturday night. Talked to a very nice lady named Mary who seemed on top of things (said she would go back and organize her husband’s notes on what rooms had already been booked).
I’m planning to ride my 690 up, so I booked both Friday and Sunday at Pines (I’ll need to rest up before the 6 hour ride home from St Ignace). Is anyone else doing the same?July 27, 2017 at 2:14 pm #12980
I will be trailering/racking by 450EXC up to the UP for this ride, so will probably just power it home on Sunday evening.July 30, 2017 at 7:52 pm #12993
Is there someone that has a spare bed in their room. My knee might be ready to ride by that weekend.

Any gpx files for the UP routes yet?August 2, 2017 at 10:01 am #13000
I updated the count to add Gary and Andrew. If anyone is considering this ride then they should really book their hotel rooms.August 2, 2017 at 11:43 am #13002
Anyone not above sleeping on the floor like a hobo can crash in my room(s) if need be.August 2, 2017 at 12:18 pm #13003
Jeff and I made that mistake last time. Mike Drew crashed on our floor… 😛

I will join the UP ride too. I am planning to trailer up on Friday and back Sunday night. I booked the last room available at the Northernaire in St Ignace (Pines and Cedars full) and booked the last room at Superior in Grand Marais with Mary (she told me to notify the group that her last room went). Looking forward to visiting the Peninsula (never been) with the adventurers!
Tip from Mary: black flies do bite and are more attracted by dark colors.August 9, 2017 at 8:53 am #13026
The heck with Hotels, “watcha ridin” Here is what I am tracking. Good mix of bikes
