Bicycling Lake Huron
Cycling Around Lake Huron

                Lion's Head, Ontario, Bruce Peninsula; Harvey Botzman, 2004.

    Lake Huron, a Great Lake of North America is is a unique and wonderful cycling experience. Relatively unknown for being a location to bicycle tour, the shore line around the main portion of the Lake, in both Michigan (USA) and Ontario (Canada) is remarkable for its beautiful views. The ear of Lake Huron, better known as Georgian Bay is surrounded by First Nation Lands as well as State, Provincial and National Parks. Forests abound and the Lake teems with fish. Bird watchers can view many species seen only in a few areas of North and South America.

    North on the Bruce Peninsula to Tobermory! Cross the Georgian Bay outlet via the MS. Chi-Cheemaun ferry. Along the way you’ve bicycled past the rock formations at Lion’s Head; hiked a bit of the Bruce Trail; and snorkeled among shipwrecks at Bruce Peninsula National Park.
    The ferry takes you to Manitoulin Island. To ride onwards 'round Lake Huron, crossing the Island at its widest point; or to turn westward on the Island to explore its bays, inlets and lakes is a hard decision to make.
    Resort towns and fine Parks to visit as you tour south bound to Sarnia. Crossing the Detroit River from Ontario into Michigan, north bound you go on Lake Huron's eastern shore, the sunrise coast!
    Fine lighthouses and beaches of delight; through National and State forests you'll bicycle on lightly traveled rural roads.
    A ferry transports you between St. Ignace on Michigan's Upper Peninsula to Mackinaw City on the Lower Peninsula. Perhaps you'll stop at Mackinac Island. No autos allowed here. A cyclist’s domain!
    A route to Michigan's Drummond Island and then on to Sault Ste. Marie is provided as an alternative to traveling directly across the Upper Peninsula to Sault Ste. Marie.
    Straight across Michigan’s Upper Peninsula to Sault Ste. Marie. The Eisenhower Locks allow magnificent ships to traverse the grand Great Lakes. Along the crystal clear waters of Lake Huron’s north shore to the Manitoulin Island Ferry. You’ve made a figure 8, and accomplished over 2000 mi. (3200 km.) of great bicycling!
    Bicycle routes connecting Lake Huron and Lake Michigan (across the palm of Michigan) as well as the connection between Lake Huron and Lake Erie are included in this excellent bicycle tour guidebook.
    Eastwards you go, ‘round Georgian Bay. Stopping at Killarney Provincial Park for two days of canoeing. Onwards to Owen Sound crossing the Bruce Peninsula to the western shore of Lake Huron.
