Start off the day with Houghton’s finest in blue escorting us across the Portage Canal Lift Bridge, then you’re off to ride one of our most beautiful routes (the beauty in our Beauty & The Beast). The Kewaneew Peninsula is the northernmost part of Michigan and is famous for the largest copper boom in history.
