Default Ride in the Keewenaw Peninsula, MI last fall

With the passing of my dad in August last year, I decided that September would be a good time to take my bike up to the Upper Peninsula of Michigan and do a tour of the Keewenaw. It was one my dads favorite places to be. So I through a PBR in my back pack and headed north. It was one of best bike rides Ive ever been on (with the exception of a fine mist of coolant spraying the inside of my windscreen).

This is the route I took.


First stop - thats Lake Superior in the back ground


Second Stop - Eagle River Falls. When its dry, theyre not so impressive.


Third Stop - Monks Monestary. They sell some awesome jam and brownies there. I also had several dozen people checking out the bike.


Forth Stop - A little scenic turn about overlooking Lake Superior


Fifth Stop - Top of Brockway Mountain. This is where I poured the PBR out.


Final Stop before rocketing the 65 miles back - Over looking Copper Harbor Michigan.

Theres no doubt I will. I go up to Calumet at least twice a year. I'll probably stay off scenic path along the water though - it was a pretty rough ride. Going to the top of Brockway sucked major. I had to stand up most of the time.

Shute's Bar is a nice stop in Calumet and the Ambassador in Houghton a good one also.
