    I've updated the previous track that was posted here and replace it with a new track. The link for the attached file does not work.

    See below for file download.

    This file is an updated track for an entertaining ride around Lake Michigan. It includes an optional loop that takes in Sault Ste Marie and Whitefish Point.

    Several ride reports give information about the points of interest on this track. There include:

    I set it up so that you choose your own route through Chicago. Many people choose to take the freeways to by-pass city streets.

    This shows the optional Whitefish-Sault route.

    Choose your own path to deal with Chicago.

    It looks like the SS Badger (ferry from Manitowoc to Ludington) is not going to run for a while so I pulled it off the track.

    Cannonshot, I just wanted to take a second to personally thank you for sharing this route. I just did 5 days totaling 1,358 mi largely using this route and had an incredible ride. This was my first multi-day trip and now I'm already trying to decide what my next trip is going to be.

    SV1000S with Corbin seat and Heli Bars probably wasn't the PERFECT bike for this kind of ride, but really handled it pretty well all things considered. Thank you
