    General Overview

    A week long trip going clockwise around Lake Superior, starting in Ludington and ending in Newaygo/Baldwin. This is the route and campgrounds that Pat O’Neill and Dale Estes are planning on and will be the ‘official’ TCD spots, however, you are certainly encouraged to do your own thing whether that is different campgrounds or hotels, different stops along the way or whatever. We will pick a morning breakfast spot for each day where we can all meet up, talk about that day’s coming ride and break into riding groups.

    General Route Map:

    Watch the TCD forums for posting of the official GPS routes and tracks. Here is a general look at the plan:

    We'll upload the tracks and routes as we get them finalized.  Here's a copy of the itinerary in pdf format.  It lists the camp sites  and phone numbers, it's advised to make your reservations as soon as you can.


    This is going to be an epic week long ride, hope to see you there!

    Tawas Point State Park , East Tawas, MI. Pay memorial tribute with other TCD members to those brave sailors lost from the Edmund Fitzgerald to the icy waters of Lake Superior. We ride up to Tawas Point State Park on Saturday. Have dinner in East Tawas, then build a camp fire you can see from the moon! Either camp at the park or grab a motel in East Tawas. Turnout is weather dependent. Last year (snow) we had one rider and 3 arrived in a car. If the weather is great we could have 25-30. Last chance to sneak a ride in for the year.
