Really great ride report and thanks for sharing your part of the world with us. I have not travelled to that part of the US but hope I get the chance to! I posted a link of your RR on RDS to spread the word. Thanks for taking us along!

Great RR. We passed through the area on hwy 2 from Duluth - St ignace in a car this fall. As we passed throug i looked at the maps and thought there must be some good riding up towards the Superior coast. Have downloaded your GPS files (incl your CDR route that is a possible late summer ride) and will be making a trip to at least part of it (Houghton are)this summer. May use the northern part as a return route on an Around Lake Superior ride.

Thanks. Beautiful area up there. Hope you enjoy the Keweenaw and Houghton. Late summer seems like a great time for riding this or the GDR track. Sounds like you are planning a great season next year.

Sept ride possible

A group of about 10 North Carolina riders would like to do the upper Penincula trail around the first 2 weeks of Sept. Any guidance and suggestions are desirable? We lean toward the dirt side and ride mostly dr's. ktms and klx bikes. Thanks for any input.

I can give you as much detail as you want. PM me a phone number and we can chat about any questions you have beyond the detail already in this report.

Excellent ride report Bryan! You had me glued through the whole thing. Awesome pictures, documentary and you continue to amaze me how detailed you are with the historical significance in your reports. It's like having our private tour guide. Very well done my man.

Amidst the ice storm, I just had to go and read through this RR again.

Hurry up spring!

Anyway, sorry if I missed this in posts, but what's a reasonable amount of time to set aside to ride the entire UPAT? I'll probably be taking at least half of the big bike go-arounds.

Thanks again for something to look forward to.

Thanks. I think it can be comfortably ridden in five days. I think I would plan for six in case I wanted to spend more time exploring some of the points of interest.

Looking to use the Big Bike route as a training run for a 2up trip my wife and I are taking in late August.

If I was limited to a weekend, what section of the route might more closely resemble what we'll find in Colorado and Montana?

Sandy east.

Rocky west.

More elevation west.

Go west and ride the Keweenaw. Ride out of Marquette or Gwinn into the Keweenaw Peninsula. On the way back down short cut it back to you start point as the schedule requires for a weekend ride.
