Michigan is divided into the lower and upper peninsulas and separated by the Straits of Mackinaw, a five mile wide body of water. The peninsulas are connected by one of the longest suspension bridges in the world – the Mighty Mackinaw Bridge. You cannot walk or cycle the bridge, so the bikes and riders are transported by truck and van.
The U P – as it’s called by locals – provided excellent roads with minimal traffic and spectacular scenery…not to mention the food. Oh the pasties and the homemade pie! That lunch called for a swim…or a siesta. A wonderful 65 mile day!
Till next time…..
