Captains Ride Free, Michigander Improves Accessibility!
Updated: Apr 27, 2022
We wanted to share some good news with you about the 2022 Michigander/Great Lake to Lake Trail bicycle tour riding along Route 1. Neal Glazebrook, Events Director at the League of Michigan Bicyclists (LMB) wanted to let everyone know that they are working to make sure the tour is open to everyone, including those with special needs. Neal asks that folks contact him directly to ask questions.
"I wanted to also let you know that we have a new offering. If you have a special need and want to join with a captain that is leading a tandem or other style of cycle for you, your captain rides for free! Please contact me directly to set this up at email@example.com. " said Neal.

In other Michigander/Great Lake to Lake Trail Tour news - there will be a hotel shuttle offering this year for folks who would rather sleep in a bed than in tent during the tour. An airport shuttle will also be available at the start and finish for folks flying in for the tour. The shuttles are part of the effort to make the tour available to everyone who wants to attend!
Hotel Reservations are not included but the shuttle will run from the overnight campground each afternoon to the hotels, then back to the school for dinner, and then back to the hotels after the Rider Meeting. On July 26, check-in day for the tour, a shuttle is available to take folks from the Kalamazoo Airport or train station before the tour and bring them to the check-in desk in South Haven. On July 31st when the tour concludes in Port Huron, a shuttle will be available late that afternoon to take folks to Detroit Wayne County Airport. Again for more information about signing up for the shuttles, contact Neal at firstname.lastname@example.org
