Bike Michigan 2010

Ellsworth Lake

Yes, we hit summer time in northern Michigan – high 70s, abundant flowers, lakes galore and sunshine. Our first day was Bellaire to Boyne City – 77 miles with a stop in the burg of Ellsworth at the Gold Nugget Bar and the local lakeside park for a brew and lunch.

Day 2 was Boyne City to Harbor Springs – 48 miles beginning on the south side of Lake Charlevoix then westward to the big lake – Lake Michigan. We were typical northern Michigan fudgies – on bikes.

Now this tastes much better then GU

Day 3 we pedaled north along the coast of Lake Michigan from Harbor Springs to Cross Village– 42 miles with lunch at the infamous north Michigan Polish restaurant – Leggs Inn. Then onto the Headlands. Oh that cool lake swim sure does feel refreshing after a day on the bike.

Yes, we have arrived in the north woods.

Sure beats the heat of Tucson right now!
