LMB = Leauge of Michigan Bicyclists
Distance rode a little over 300 miles.
Highlights: The people, both fellow riders and population, and the scenery, the UP in Michigan is senic and wild. Wildlife (saw a wolf and a moose see below)
Lowlights: Cracked a couple of ribs on the first day (don't ever ride on Mackinaw Island on a weekend), Almost attacked by a moose protecting her dead (road kill) calf, I didn't see the dead calf. I really don't care if I ever see a Moose that close again.
Pie: Somewhat lacking, but made up for the local dish called a "Pastie" (we call it a Cornish pastery), had some real athentic "Pasties" with a lot of the "Rutabaggy"
Lessons Learned: You can ride with bad ribs, it really doesn't hurt that much, (you can't stand to ride up a hill),enough Ibiprofin helps. What you can not do, is sleep on the ground. Don't play with Moose.
Great tour will go again.
Pictures will come including the Moose.
