On Climate Ride’s first adventure in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula, we’ll spend 6 days exploring some of the best this picturesque area has to offer. The ride starts and ends in the town of Manistique on Lake Michigan’s northern shore. From there, we’ll spend a couple of days riding to reach Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore, where we’ll spend a layover day hiking and taking a pontoon boat for an up-close look at these unique rock formations. We’ll also stay in a Civil War-era hotel with its own bar and restaurant with outdoor seating – definitely a highlight of the trip. If you live in the Midwest, this is a dream vacation that is close to home with great road cycling, nice hotels, and the epic scenic beauty that is Pure Michigan.

Riding on quiet back roads and remote byways, this Climate Ride will challenge, inspire, and surprise as you pedal and connect with like-minded people dedicated to advancing sustainability. Climate Ride charitable events bring together bright minds, breathtaking routes for all cycling abilities, and an unforgettable combination of passion and purpose. On this trip, we’ll get a first-hand look at the environmental issues affecting the Wolverine State.

Our Climate Ride outfitter’s staff takes care of all the details, so you can focus on riding the 30-54 miles per day of carefully-planned routes on scenic roads. It’s challenging yet achievable, and you have all day to make it to the next rest stop. Most meals, snacks, bike support, luggage transport, and all of the logistics are included when you reach the fundraising commitment. On the road, the Climate Ride support team is always nearby to assist you, keep you happy and healthy, and make your ride worry-free and memorable. Bike rental options are not available on this ride, so you’ll need to bring a bike!
