2012 Shoreline West Bicycle Tour Wrap Up

Thanks to Brenda Carlton from Peachtree City, GA for letting us use parts of her journal about the 2012 Shoreline West Bicycle Tour.

My choice for a week-long group road bike tour for 2012 was the highly recommended tour of the western side of northern Michigan along the shoreline of Lake Michigan. For seven days, 400+ riders rode through the scenic rural roads often paralleling the shore of the 2nd largest Great Lake. Looking out over the lake, I often felt I was at an ocean based on its immense size and many sandy beaches and picturesque harbors. At its max, Lake Michigan is 118 miles wide, 307 miles long and 980’ deep. On the windy days, waves pound the shoreline.
