LSCT 2018 via bicycle

Elly and I completed our tour around the Big Lake on August 4th, 2018. We set off from The Lake of the Clouds in the Porcupine Mountains of Michigan, biking clockwise around Superior, and returned to our starting point after 23 days of riding. We had completed weekend tours before, but this journey was by far the biggest and baddest either of us had attempted. The quality of the roads More

Father-Son Retirement Celebration Ride

After my Dad retired, he wanted to do something crazy, so he asked me to bike around the Lake with him. Neither of us had bike-packing experience, but our local bike shop helped us gear up. The trip was great! We biked an average of 65 miles a day, camped at campgrounds and stayed in hotels. We went clockwise around the Lake starting and ending in Duluth.

The Beauty Was Unmatched

I completed the circle of Lake Superior this summer during the month of July 2014 as a solo trip at the age of 67. I completed the tour by bicycle and car. It was a colder and wetter experience than I expected but the beauty was unmatched by anything else I have been privileged to see. On the Canadian side, by far the most rugged and rural, the most beauty 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

Fulfillment of a Lifelong Dream

From August 18, 2012, to September 16 my friend Tracy Johnson and I bicycled around Lake Superior. We had some equipment problems and two full days of rest, so in total we rode 1,230 miles in 25 days. We carried all of our own gear and camped out all but three nights. I am middleaged and not in excellent shape, so I felt every windy, hilly mile. It is hard More

Completed on My Bicycle

I recently completed the Circle Tour around Lake Superior on my bicycle! I completed the Circle Tour on the 28th of September. We began the Tour on the 10th of September. The entire tour was beautiful, the first day crossing over from Minnesota to Ontario was breathtaking. I also fell in love with the Upper Peninsula, and Duluth, Minnesota, was my favorite city we passed through. It is a shame More

I Really Loved Minnesota

I rode my bicycle around Lake Superior in September 2012 with Emma Higgins. We began our ride on September 11 and finished on September 28. We left from Marquette, Michigan, and ended in the same city. We rode around the lake clockwise, riding the peninsula first, traveling through Wisconsin, Minnesota, Ontario and then back to Michigan. The entire week we were in Canada it rained, but the lush woods and More

The Scenery Was Amazing

Along with two friends, I biked around Lake Superior, beginning in Duluth on June 28, 2012 and finishing July 6 at Canal Park. It certainly was a challenge, especially from Sault Ste. Marie to Nipigon, Ontario. The hills were challenging, but the scenery was amazing. Larry Campbell, St. Cloud, Minnesota

I rode from More

Bicycled Around Lake Superior

In June of 2009 my sister Pat and I cycled around Lake Superior. I recall the mileage to be about 1,340 miles, but it took up three weeks. We left our cars at Michigan Tech’s Ford Forestry Center and cycled up to Copper Harbor and then continued west in a clockwise ride around the lake. Our favorite section was the north shore of Minnesota. The cycling was great, the state parks More
