Cool nights, great riding, plenty of other lodging in the area and many great roads to explore. You’ll be less than an hour away from the Great Mackinac Bridge. Watch this page for information as it becomes available.

Scenic Rides

One of the most scenic rides is M-119 "Tunnel of Trees". Although only 20 miles long, this road hugs the eastern shoreline of lake Michigan through a dense forest.  On one side you get a glimpse of old summer cabin homes and on the other side, you see the glorious Lake Michigan shoreline. Lotsa twisties!! Heading north, the route leads to Cross Village, home of a unique turn of the century field stone and driftwood Polish Pub called Leggs Inn which sits on a bluff over Lake Michigan.

Registration is $40 for RA members, $50 for non-members, plus meals on Friday evening and Saturday evening are extra, payable at registration. PREREGISTRATION SAVES YOU $$$. Admission is $15 more at the gate, meals cost $1 more and shirts are $4 extra.     Register here.

    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.
