Located at the very tip of the top of Michigan's Upper Peninsula, the Keweenaw is one of the most remote regions Michigan offers cyclists. Keweenaw County is home to about 2,200 people, or four people per square mile. Population increases during the summer tourism season, but the roads are still extremely lightly traveled, and the scenery, featuring miles of undeveloped, rugged Lake Superior shoreline, is superb. You'll also ride by remnants of the copper mining industry, which, though hard to imagine today, made the Keweenaw a hub of wealth and technology in the last half of the nineteenth century. The copper veins that once lured thousands of fortune-seekers are now history, but it is still well worth the effort to come to the Keweenaw. Terrain: Rolling to hilly.
