Cycling with Friends: Part 147 Bucket List Ride Through Harbor Springs, Michigan


February 2020

No salt, no teeth… It’s not for the weak-hearted, though!  The water is CHILLY – even in August.


The ride from Petosky State Park, through Harbor Springs, to the Tunnel of Trees into Cross Village and back is one of the most amazing rides in Michigan.  52-ish miles of the best Michigan has to offer.  If you ever find yourself in a camping mood, you can stay right at Petoskey State Park and ride right from there.  If you’re not into camping, try a hotel in Petoskey, or better, rent a house in Harbor Springs.  Pick a time between mid-June and the end of August for your best shot at phenomenal weather.

  1. I used to go to Harbor Springs every May for a riding weekend with the guys. A friend had a townhouse down the street from the bike shop. One day of riding always involved a ride to Petosky and the area. One day was a ride on the tunnel of trees up to Mackinac. Agree… Fantastic riding.

      Sadly, the road up the coast to Mackinaw City is almost impassable its so tore up. We’ve had to route around it the last two years because it’s just too gnarly for the DALMAC crew. I love riding between the dunes on either side.
