Our Lake Superior Bike Tour
This summer, we took on the world’s largest freshwater lake—by bike! Circumnavigating Lake Superior is a 1,200-mile cycling journey that includes rocky islands, historic lighthouses, dramatic seascapes, crashing waves, disastrous shipwrecks, and a boatload of adventure! We left our tiny house on four wheels behind, for a two-wheeled adventure around the majestic Gichigami.
We began our bike tour on the Chequamegon Bay of Lake Superior, in Kaylee’s college town—Ashland, WI. We travelled clockwise around the lake, passing through Duluth, Minnesota and then traveling up the North Shore. North of Grand Portage, we crossed the US-Canada border into Ontario.
Soon after, we pedaled through the largest city on our route, Thunder Bay, Ontario. Beyond Thunder Bay our daily rides will took us through remote and unpopulated areas of Ontario on the Trans-Canada Highway.
We crossed back into the US in Sault Ste. Marie, Michigan. Our journey continued into the Upper Peninsula of Michigan, famous for its sandy beaches and delicious potpie-like pastries called pasties. A few more days in the saddle brought us back at our starting point in Ashland.
