Great Lake-to-Lake Inaugural Ride


The Great Lake-to-Lake Trails Route #1 Inaugural Ride will bring together cycling enthusiasts for the first time on a 275-mile sightseeing trails adventure from South Haven to Port Huron. Highlighting Michigan’s multi-use trails system and back roads, the Great Lake-to-Lake Trails Route #1 Inaugural Ride cyclists will pedal through award-winning scenery in popular tourist destinations as well as towns off the beaten path. Riders will stay in hotels and inns along the way, flocking to each town during the evening, eager to explore local flavor, culture and eateries.

The ride celebrates the opening of the trail that culminates the unification of 9 counties, 34 municipalities and 42 townships in the state’s first fully-marked destination trail and will help to feature continued national attention on the nation’s leading trail state. The 7-day, 6-night ride begins on the beautiful Lake Michigan beach town, South Haven. The route is connected by 16 individual trails, and these trails go through many popular Michigan destinations, including Kalamazoo, Jackson, Brighton, and Rochester Hills. The ride ends in the historical town of Port Huron, with picturesque views of Lake Huron.
