This ride starts in a well-known town on the south shore of Lake Superior. You will leave from a park with not only great wildlife viewing, but also an artesian well to fill your water bottles. The cruise travels counterclockwise, first along the sandy beaches of Lake Gitche Gumee as the seagulls frolic in the breeze and then west past the Northern Great Lakes Visitors Center. You then head south on a tour past several small towns that contributed to the area’s history. Along the way, stop at a cheese shop in a town named after a French settler, then roll down Moonshine Alley to a village named for the Freemasons. After riding past a field of sunflowers, travel through a community with a large sawmill operation before returning back through the historic district of Ashland.
