The Pointes, as the five suburbs north of Detroit are known collectively, are old-money, exclusive residential communities. On Lake Shore Drive, the highlight of the Grosse Pointe Ramble, you'll ride by old homes built by barons of the auto and other industries. Stunning in terms of size and extravagance, they are outdone only by their view of Lake St. Clair. On this ride you'll get to enjoy that view, too. Maryland is the southern limit of the Grosse Pointe Ramble, which will take you through all five of the Pointes. As you make the loop, you'll see that stratification exists within the Pointes, too. From your bike seat you can observe and appreciate those differences, from the charm of a front porch on a Grosse Pointe Park duplex to the estate lawns of a lakefront mansion in Grosse Pointe Shores. Terrain: Flat.
