Best Circle Tour of All

Lake Superior is, from my perspective, the best of all the Great Lakes Circle Tours. The views are fantastic, the roads are good to excellent, and the people you’ll meet are friendly and engaging. The highlights of my solo motorcycle trip were Whitefish Point and the Great Lakes Shipwreck Museum, Tahquamenon Falls, the Pictured Rocks Cruise, the ride up the Keweenaw Peninsula to the top of Brockway Mountain, the ride More

Solo Cycle Circle Tour

From May 28-June 23 I traveled by bicycle clockwise around Gitche Gumee, beginning and ending in Duluth MN. I cycled 25 days over 1,500 miles, camping almost every night and averaging 60mi/97km per day, and all but the first 3 days were done solo. My compiled daily journal from trip can be found here: https://www.crazyguyonabike.com/doc/?o=1mr&doc_id=20075&v=3L As a queer and transgender woman, completing the circle solo gives me an extra sense More

Many Favorite and Memorable Spots

I joined a group of 20 women to bicycle around Lake Superior. Our tour, arranged by the company WomanTours, which began and ended in Duluth, Minnesota, was scheduled for July 8 to August 2, 2013. Our first actual day of bicycling was July 9th and our last day of riding was August 1st. We began by traveling east with our first stop being Bayfield, Wisconsin. After that we spent 11 days More

Completed Twice

My wife and I (Marcus and Brittney) have done the Circle Tour twice. First in 2009 and the second was with my father (Tom) in 2011. In 2009, my wife and I did the tour on my 2003 Harley-Davidson motorcycle. I proposed to my wife at a bed-and-breakfast inn in Thunder Bay. Favorite spots were Thunder Bay, the road on the north shore in Canada, and Duluth, Minnesota. In 2011, More

There’s Magic in a Trip Like This

My son and I completed a circle all the way around Gitche Gumee on a 4-day motorcycle ride. The following little narration was written by me for my son and meant only for him, at that time. Others have now seen it and some have liked it. We have gone back to the Big Lake this past summer, also in August, and rode into a few of the southern shore More

We Had a Wonderful Time

Hi, My wife and I completed the Circle Tour this summer. We started in Duluth on July 18, 2011, and drove counterclockwise around the lake and ended the tour in Duluth on August 9, 2011. We were disappointed in the Minnesota government shutdown, which radically changed our plans, however we managed okay. Highlights include Keweenaw Peninsula; Sault Ste. Marie, Michigan; Wawa and Nipigon, Ontario; Grand Marais, Minnesota; Gooseberry Falls State More
