A long-standing tradition of the TCD is to enjoy the extended daylight hours by riding the northwest area of the lower peninsula. A three-day event, most ride up on Friday, tour the area on Saturday and head home on Sunday. A few extend the weekend in either direction to further enjoy the beautiful scenery around both sides of Grand Traverse Bay. The Longest Day is a good event for both road riders and ADVers, as both road routes and ADV routes are planned and ridden. Good for campers and non-campers, the campers stay at either the Interlochen State Park or Cycle Moore Campground while the non-campers tend to bed down at The Interlochen Motel.
This year's road ride is planned up the east side of Grand Traverse Bay, through the famous Tunnel of Trees and on to the Legs Inn. The ADV routes will be developed and posted.
