"I love Michigan, I love to ride my bike, and this tour was like a trip back in time to the childhood places I knew and loved. I really enjoyed meeting so many people from all over...that might be the best part of the trip!"

"I love the beautiful route! I love that there are too many things to do each day. I LOVE the wonderful, helpful staff and volunteers! I love the maps and daily information sheets. Loved all of the fruit and vegetables offered with the meals. I've done numerous state rides over the years and while they all have something to offer, this is my all-time favorite ride."

"It goes through a beautiful part of the state; wonderful to meet so many people from out of state and fun to "show off" Michigan. Makes me proud to be a Michigander. I like large group rides, and I like the energy it generates."
D. Sherman – 2015 tour participant
"Not being familiar with Michigan, I enjoyed seeing the beautiful countryside and becoming acquainted with the charming towns along the route. Specifically, I enjoyed the miles of Michigan's respect for keeping the countryside trash-free. The spectacularly crystal-clear lake water was stunning, and being an avid swimmer, I made sure that I took time out from bicycle riding to get some laps in! I also enjoyed meeting so many nice bicyclists who participated in the ride. One of the most incredible highlights of the ride were the long-term volunteers who were the backbone of the tour."
