May is National Bike Month! An annual celebration of the joy of bikes. Remember that feeling as a child when you would ride? The simple joy of freedom and independence of carefree riding as you rode! A lot of people recaptured that feeling in the last two years enjoying being outside and there is no better place to enjoy riding a bike than along Route 1 of the Great Lake to Lake Trail.
Here's what you can do during Bike Month:
Ride a mile on Route 1! Check out the map for the nearest Route 1 trailhead near you, then go out and enjoy the freedom of riding and not worrying about traffic or distracted drivers!
Register for the Michigander Bike Tour on Route 1! Celebrate 30 years of the Michigander as it crosses Michigan on it's first destination trail - Route 1!
