Pedals, Packs & The Upper Peninsula


As Bikers, campers will embark on an eight day cycling adventure, proven to be an unforgettable and unique way to explore Northern Michigan. The trip starts near Gaylord where the girls will begin their ride north on the exciting North Central State Trail. When the group reaches Mackinaw City, they will board a ferry to Mackinac Island for biking and sightseeing around the historic island. The second half of trip ventures through the scenic and beautiful Upper Peninsula of Michigan. Many of the campsites are directly on the coast with gorgeous Great Lakes views.
