Take a Great Lakes Vacation on Your Bike
Tour de Cure:
Let us help you have a great adventure trip in 2013. Our tours have something for most any bike rider to enjoy, including safe tour routes, comfortable lodging, and real food cooked to order.
Our Road Tours are famous for the combination of safe roads and beautiful scenery. We look for quiet country roads, and our local roots have allowed us to develop rides with great sights, a variety of eclectic lodging, and a wonderful selection of local restaurants. For 2013 we’ve added two new tours, The Minnesota North Shore Tour, and the Ride the Porkies Tour in the Porcupine Mountains. You might also pick the Ride to Pictured Rocks or the Adventure UP tour in the eastern U.P., or the Tour of Leelanau in lower Michigan. Several weekend tours are also available.
Great Bike Trail Tours are designed for those who prefer to avoid traffic. Our trail tours are scheduled on the best bike trails in Michigan, including on the Kal-Haven Trail from Kalamazoo to South Haven; on the White Pine Trail from Grand Rapids to Cadillac; on the Pere Marquette Trail from Midland to Reed City; and on the Alpena to Cheboygan Trail. These Trail Tours have some common features. Most of the riding is on crushed limestone, cinder, or paved trail converted from abandoned rail lines, and almost all riding is free of traffic. In addition, we’ve arranged for nice hotel or motel lodging. Most meals and trail SAG support are included.
Two Mountain Bike Tour Retreats are scheduled near Gaylord; the May Morel Madness, and the Elk Rut Ramble in September. These retreats are based at a private lodge, and great biking on the North Country Trail is yours to enjoy.
Two Ways to Pay! Our website offers you the convenience and safety of secure credit card payment for registration. If you prefer, you may download a registration form and mail in your deposit, and we’ll invoice you for the balance.
