LMB-Tours-logo-for-bannerAbout LMB & HUB Fest
The League of Michigan Bicyclists is a membership-based 501(c)(3) nonprofit founded in 1981. LMB’s mission is to promote bicycling and the safety of bicyclists on Michigan roadways.

Our world-class LMB Tours are the primary source of funding to support our advocacy efforts. For 31 years, LMB Tours have hosted thousands of cyclists from across the state and around the globe. Our events are not races but non-competitive fully supported tours that highlight Michigan’s spectacular scenery and charming communities. LMB Tours attract a wide variety of cyclists because of the diversity of each of our events.

In addition to funding LMB's mission, proceeds from the LMB Tours also help to support local bicycle projects. A portion of the proceeds from HUB Fest will be dedicated to funding cycling initiatives in Adrian.
