All Michigander routes will be marked with pins and all turns will be clearly indicated. All tour participants will be invited to join our Michigander 2019 event on Ride with GPS, which will allow you to download daily route maps and cue sheets. You will be able to use these daily routes on your mobile device in an off-line mode including turn by turn instructions if desired. Know that routes are tentative as we are tweaking them as we work with the county road commissions and police departments to ensure a great and safe ride. 

All registrants will be provided with daily cue sheets with printed routes along with things to see and do along the way. This is primarily a trail ride, with some days where we utilize roads.
