27th Annual Shoreline West Bicycle Tour

cThere is so much to experience on this ride: view historic lighthouses, pristine orchards, world famous cherries, wineries, farms, swim at sugar sand beaches, climb the dunes, grab a fresh lunch and picnic along the route in “Michigan’s playground” and ride through the Tunnel of Trees.
