Edmund Fitzgerald Ride
November 1 - November 3
Annual November Club Ride to end the season. Most stay at the Tawas Bay Beach Resort, an acceptable hotel with full restaurant and bar. Hardcore campers pitch their tents at the Tawas Point State Park. Ride up will be on Friday and there is a paved road ride on Saturday. Saturday night will include the reading of the names of those lost on Nov. 10, 1972 sinking of the ore freighter Edmund Fitzgerald. Ride home on Sunday. Historically a well-attended event and annual favorite of the TCD.
