770 bicyclists are participating in this year's Tour de Michigan events. Three different rides were offered: A weekend ride on the 17-18 July, a six-day ride July 18-23, or the full week of July 17-23.

Riders are pedaling 35-55 miles a day, on a combination of paved and single-track bike routes. Camping, two meals, and a shuttle service is provided, along with aid stations.

This is the 18th year for the event, begun as a fundraiser for the Michigan Trails and Greenways Alliance. Their goal was to increase ridership this year, and there are 185 more participants than last year. Riders range from age 8 to 86.

Riders are enjoying the beauty of northern Michigan outdoors along miles of trails including the North Central State Trail, Little Traverse Wheelway, and Petoskey to Mackinaw Trail.
