Go to any of the local TC bike shops and pick up a copy of the route map that the Cherry Capital Cycling Club produces, it's outstanding and loaded with rides of almost any length. I ride up there every year in September and October, this year it has to be August and September and have done most all of the routes, it's about as well-done as any ride map that I've ever used, even sorta plastic coated so it won't disolve into mush in your jersey pocket!
My sister has a great place to rent right on Little Glen Lake and it's only $500 a week!...but we're using it this year for a family reunion and will be there all that week. If you ride M22 around the two Glen Lakes you will be driving right past her front porch and dock! Riding around the Glen's and into the Dunes area are a MUST, as is for you to do the Old Mission Peninsula ride, it's one of my very favorites and do it at least once everytime I go up there. The ride up the Little Traverse Wheelway offers you some outstanding views but it's pretty tame in terms of hills, but it takes you to a few nice little towns and great little places to eat, drink and hang out....plus if you end up in Harbor Springs you are at the southern end of the Tunnel of Tree's ride, another "gotta do" every year for me. Glad to help more if you need me too....also, "Fred" on this forum is a local and has outstanding local knowledge that he's always happy to share.
