This metric century starts at a park along Lake Michigan’s shoreline, in a town rich in maritime history, and tours parts of a county with the same name as the river and city. You will roll along the sandy dunes, pass through a Polish settlement, and then ride down to a village named after President Grover Cleveland. Now climbing away from the lake, the route rolls west to a village with a stagecoach inn and historic polling station. You will twist and turn along a couple rivers and follow the shore of a small lake before crossing over the third river, where the rocks in the water inspired a village’s name. Now rolling to the north, you visit an old town that was named after a settler who built a stone tavern here. You then head east over undulating terrain and pass through a hillside town with a magnificent church. Soon you visit another community where the town name has been forgotten, but you can still buy an ice-cream cone for a quarter.
