NorthWest Tour Overview
NorthWest Tour is a five day bicycle tour in the beautiful Sleeping Bear Dunes and Leelanau areas of Michiganís northwest Lower Peninsula. The tour features great scenery on good roads through many small towns and tourist areas, all from the convenience of a single camping location. The Indigo Bluffs Resort, 3.5 miles east of Empire, will be our host for the tour.
The tour begins on Wednesday, June 15 and ends on Sunday, June 19. There is camping available starting on Wednesday after 12:00 Noon. On Sunday riders must return to the campground in time to pack and leave by 3:00pm.
Daily routes typically have shorter and longer options of about 30, 60, and 100 miles. The first and last days are of the shorter variety to allow for travel time. Be prepared for hilly terrain no matter which routes you take.
This is primarily a tent camping tour, with provision for some RVís (extra fee). Our campsites are in a wooded area, with nice restrooms and showers.
Included in the basic fee are tent camping facilities, route maps, SAG service, and meals. Breakfast and dinner Thursday through Saturday and breakfast on Sunday are provided and served under a large canopy in the camping area. There will be group campfires with ďSímoresĒ and munchies in the evenings.
NorthWest Tour is sponsored by the Tri-County Bicycle Association (TCBA) of Lansing, MI and is open to all capable interested bicyclists. You need not be a member of any organization to participate.
The first 300 entries will be accepted. It is recommended to apply promptly as the Tour fills very quickly!
