Norte Does Shoreline West: Notes From The Road (Part 1)

5 members of our youth leadership council, El Liderato, are riding 360 miles from Montague to the Bridge in support of the League of Michigan Bicyclists’ important work. Here are some notes from the road of our first 3 days of the 2019 Shoreline West tour.

Day #1: Montague to Ludington

We had a rough start as we lost Amelia to a crash early on today. She’s bumped and bruised but okay. The rest of the team rallied and rode strong through Silver Lake Sand Dunes and Pentwater on our way to Ludington.


Day #2: Ludington to Frankfort

Fantastic second day as we rode through Manistee, Onekama, and Arcadia. We tackled a couple of stiff climbs before cruising into Frankfort.


Day #3: Frankfort to Traverse City

We had the home-field advantage today as we rode some very familiar roads from Frankfort to Empire to Glen Arbor to Maple City to home. Couldn’t have asked for a better morning considering the heavy storm last night.


We have a rest day here in TC tomorrow and then it’s back on the road to Charlevoix Thursday. Help us reach our goal of $7,200 for the League of Michigan Bicyclists. We’re just $400 short. Chip in a few bucks HERE.
