ABOUT THE 10 DAY CHALLENGE RIDE
Our 10 day ride has you completing TDY in 10 quick days. Do you have what it takes to ride 1,200 miles in 10 days??
Let’s Find Out Together
WHEN WE START
Start your adventure on Friday, August 14 in St. Ignace and complete it when you roll back into St. Ignace on Sunday, August 23.
WHERE WE RIDE
Ride around the outskirts of the Upper Peninsula, where you will ride through all 15 counties and countless cute little towns.
# of MILES
TDY is composed of 10 sections, averaging 120 miles per section. We stay in each city for one night and in the morning it’s off to the next city (except for Houghton, we are there for 2 nights)
SAFE ROADS, WONDERFUL PEOPLE and BEAUTIFUL SECTIONS
Safety is our #1 priority, over 95% of our route is off main highways, leaving you with beautiful, wide open roads to enjoy. Count the cars compared to wildlife, you’ll be amazed.
Only a few miles out of the 1,200 are on gravel (you can ride a road bike the entire time).
Come with friends or come alone, either way, you’ll have more friends when you’re finished riding than you did before you started. Whether you want to ride as fast as you can, take your time and explore or simply pedal with a group of other riders, anyway you ride it, you’ll be on the right path to a great experience you’ll never forget.
Come see the beauty of 3 Great Lakes, enjoy the serenity of small towns and even ride in Wisconsin for a bit (~5 miles).
The U.P. has a variety of things to do, here are just a few:
- Visit the Two Hearted River that Ernest Hemingway wrote about
- Watch ships as they pass through the very important SOO Locks
- Try some delicious planked whitefish
- Watch the Tahquamenon Falls, where two cascades disgorge up to 50,000 gallons of water per second
- Stop in Christmas to do some shopping
- See the famous Pictured Rocks
- Enjoy a Pasty
IF THAT DOESN’T ENTICE YOU, WE DON’T KNOW WHAT WILL
TDY’s Challenge to You
DO YOU HAVE WHAT IT TAKES??
Ultimately complete all 10 sections of our course, over any length of time…1 year or 10 years, we simply want you to ride and enjoy all that the U.P. has to offer. We challenge you to come ride ~120 miles a day and have the time of your life while doing it. Seems crazy, but it’s true!
IT’S SIMPLE…TO SHOW OFF THE U.P.
Michigan’s Upper Peninsula is a Bikers Paradise, with some of the safest roads in the world.
We have established a phenomenal 10 section, 1,200 mile bike route that circles the entire Upper Peninsula. We want to show it all off, the beauty, the kindness of Yoopers and the laid back live style that Michigan’s Upper Peninsula has to offer. Each section has beautiful views and exciting challenges.
Come see for yourself how awesome the U.P. is.
