NorthWest Tour Overview

NorthWest Tour is a five day bicycle tour in the beautiful Sleeping Bear Dunes and Leelanau areas of Michigan's 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 17 and ends on Sunday, June 21. 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 12:00pm.

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. Our campsites are in a wooded area, with nice restrooms and showers. Anyone not tenting must reserve their site directly with Indigo Bluffs RV Park, at 231-326-5050.

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 S'mores and munchies on some evenings, a concert, and a raffle.

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. We recommend that you apply promptly as the Tour fills quickly!
