League of Michigan Bicyclist

Has anyone toured with this organization? Some of their week long tours look like fun. http://www.lmb.org/index.htm Anyone know, how well they are organized, how is the camping, and the most important how is the food. Thanks for the help.

I'll be reading the replies as well. I am thinking of doing the M.U.P. with the LMB this July.

Out fishing with Annie on his lap, a cigar in one hand and a ginger ale in the other, watching the sunset.

I have talked to several who have done the LMB tours and they really liked them, specifically the Shoreline Tour. Can't speak as much to the others, but the Shoreline seems quite nice. I bought the map for that tour and did it solo a couple of times and always had a great time.

I rode with them several years ago. The Circle (no longer available) and West tours back-to-back. They are a great organization, do a really good job. Their current tours look really inviting, but it's a long way for me to go for a one week tour. If I could get two weeks back-to-back again, I wouldn't hesitate to go.
