TCD’s 5th Annual Up North Dual Sport Ride - There’s just no stopping TCD dual sporter Dave Allgood! The past 4 years have found brave (foolish?) TCD dual sporters heading into the Yoop for a dual sport ride.

This year instead of the UP we are going somewhere a bit closer this year. We have two 100 mile loops and one 50 mile loop in the works on a combination of paved and unpaved roads in the Mancelona area. These routes have not been checked out so we will all be on an adventure together. There are two track, and ORV trails also in the area if these routes prove to be too tame.

Count on sand, gravel, and hardpack for the unpaved surfaces. Get your MI ORV and trail stickers installed if you plan on going off road. I will at least try to provide waypoints for some of the ORV stuff.

Keep your eyes on the TCD message forum  for further details.

    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 was excellent weather, we had about 10 riders.  If the weather is great we could have 25-30. Last chance to sneak a ride in for the year.
