Lake superior 1000















It will definately be a GRINDER !!!! The speed limit up on the North shore of Lake Superior in Ontario,Canada is only 55 MPH (90 KM/H) and then you will be riding across the Upper Penninsula of Michigan at night.

Last time I checked only around 100 people have ever certified this ride within the 24 hour time limit.

The registration money is fully refunded if you dont make the ride or even if you dont finish the ride.

Here is the link to tbe original flyer so you can open the links within it.

Have fun!

looks good

I'm tempted.
But if we did it right now, we could avoid those pesky roads and ride a thousand miles ON Lake Superior!
