Not the greatest picture, but it does show the really generous shoulders on this rambling and interesting highway which we recently drove from St Ignace, Michigan (Mackinac bridge) across Michigan, Wisconsin, and Minnesota until it eventually hooked up with highway #59 south of Tolstoi and about 60km’s east of Grand Forks, ND. What a roadies dream. This highway meanders through rolling hills, great lakes shores and state and national forests for about 1,800Km’s with a superb 6 foot wide shoulder on either side. The speed limit is 55mph and the traffic is light and almost no 18 wheelers. There are small towns just about every 40KM’s and lots of clean and cheap motels along the way. I saw only two cyclists the entire three days of driving. The route seems to be almost totally overlooked by the cycling community. Motorcyclists, on the other hand, have discovered it big time. There were hundreds of them all along the ride (perhaps coming home from Sturgis ’cause they were all headed east). There were also dozens of boarded up businesses and motels along the way, especially in Michigan. They need our patronage guys and we need to ride, a win-win opportunity. When do we plan the M-I-T US#2 Tour?
