The Bike & Sail adventure begins at our shop in Suttons Bay and travels down the Leelanau Trail to Traverse City being lead by our knowledgeable local guides. We embark down the paved scenic trail passing farms, orchards and vineyards along the way. About halfway into our journey, we make a detour at Shady Lane Cellars for a guided wine tasting paired with chef selected charcuterie & cheese. Following our pleasant detour, we hop back on our bikes for our last leg into Traverse City.
Arriving at the pier, we have a moment to change and get ready for our sail back. Thanks to our support van which has transported all of your personal belongings that weren’t needed for the bike ride.
Following an intro from the captain & crew prior to embarking; we toast to the day with local wine & craft beer. Our guides will morph into your servers as the sail begins. On our tour back of Grand Traverse Bay dinner will be hosted by renowned local chef, Bryon Figueroa of FIG’s restaurant in Lake Leelanau. Chef Fig will mesmerize your taste buds with an artfully paired farm to table meal on board the ship.
For those of you who are interested in sailing there will be various opportunities to help the crew rig the sails amongst other tasks, becoming part of the team sailing on the Great Lakes.
The tour will finish back in Suttons Bay after the 2-3 hour sail and tour of Grand Traverse Bay. Join us for this truly unique experience!
