JULY 16-23, 2016

The 25th Michigander will take place July 16-23, 2016 in West Michigan. We are developing the routes now and will share the route locations in January, 2016. Stay tuned!

Every July, Ride the Best Bike Tour in Michigan

Named one of the 'Top 10 Multi-Day Rides in America' by Bicycling Magazine, The Michigander combines beautiful trails, Great Lakes beaches, lighthouses, rivers, virgin white pines, and a healthy serving of brewpubs. It's a perfect Pure Michigan route.

The 2016 Michigander is offers three tour options; 2-Day Tour, 6-Day Tour or 8-day Tour which combines both the 2-Day and 6-Day Tours. Routes feature a mix of paved and crushed limestone surfaced trails and roads, and on occasion (if necessary) short jaunts on dirt roads and or unpaved trails. The 2-Day Michigander is designed to be a casual, easy ride up to 30-35 miles each day. It starts and finishes in the same town, so those that prefer a shorter ride can simply turn back at any time. The 6-Day Tour moves upwards of 50-60 miles a day and moves from town to town. Those that do the 8-Day Tour often consider the 2-Day Tour as a good warm up to the 6-Day Tour.

Camping is included as well as breakfast and dinner daily. About 10-15% of the riders stay in nearby recommended hotels. For those that prefer to have someone else set up their camp, Michigan Cycling Charters offers set up and tear down service for a reasonable fee.

  • Water/snack stops (every 10-15 Miles)
