Campground for the Longest Day and Fall Color Tour
06/24/2022 - 06/26/2022 All day
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.

This is a TCD favorite, and we're heading back to Interlochen to view some magnificent fall foliage. The official camp location is the Interlochen State Park (tent camping, RV hook-ups and cottages are available) just south of town. For those who aren't fond of camping there's nearby lodging at the Interlochen Motel, about a mile north of the Interlochen State Park on M-137. They also have a fire pit right on the property. Typically, if the weather forecast if favorable, we often have 30 riders attend this event. If the weather sucks, then only three or four. We hope for beautiful fall weather.
