In southeast Michigan is a fantastic ride in the shape of an upside-down triangle featuring cemeteries at each corner-appropriate for a ride in late October. Actually, there is nothing spooky about it. The last two cemeteries on the ride offer paved small roads-paths really-that wind through the cemeteries; they're used for walking, jogging, and bicycling. They're treated as parks, and with all the trees, flowers and ornamental headstones, they look like them, too. If the thought of a cemetery tour is discomforting, think of it as the "Great Big Barn Tour." Along curves and up and down hills, the ride passes some of the most picturesque barns in Michigan. And the ride takes you on good roads, with either a wide shoulder or a wide lane, and nearly all with light traffic. Things to see: Picturesque cemeteries, old barns, towns of Tecumesh, Macon, and Clinton.
