SummerTour & SummerTour Weekend Registration remains open until June 6, 2018 or the tour fills.


This year we are going to be able to offer a SummerTour Weekend, as we have rented the entire campground, we have more space than usual.


Join the tour Friday as early as 9 AM, at a discounted rate. Camp with the SummerTour group two nights and enjoy two or three days of riding as well as four catered meals (Friday and Saturday dinner, Saturday and Sunday breakfast).


Are you saving vacation for something special? Can’t get away from work? Do you want a tour a bit smaller than five days? This’ll be great!


The roads in this year’s SummerTour are lightly traveled. “Drive and Ride” takes you to the paved White Pine and Pere Marquette rail trails. Grab your county maps and “Ride Your Own Story.” Go where you want to go, those thin lines on the map are gravel roads and we know where there are dirt trails. Bring your road bicycle. Bring your mountain bicycle. Bring your fat tire bicycle.


The park plans to have WIFI. Keep up on Facebook. Check in at work. Stream movies in your tent. All the connectivity of home. All persons staying at Veteran's Memorial Campground must register and pay for SummerTour 2018.


It’ll be great. Your friends will wish they’d come.

SummerTour Event

SummerTour is a five-day bicycle tour that travels around to different places each summer in Michigan. This year’s tour features routes on roads and/or trails all from the convenience of a single camping location, Veteran’s Memorial Park Campground in Marion, MI. All persons staying at the campground must be registered and pay for SummerTour.


The tour will begin on Wednesday, July 11 and end on Sunday, July 15, 2018. Camping will be available starting on Tuesday, July 10 after 3 PM at no additional charge. On Sunday riders will return to the campground in time to pack and leave by 2 PM.


Daily routes typically have shorter and longer options of about 25, 50, and 75 miles. The Sunday rides will be a shorter variety to allow for returning to camp, shower and check-out by 2 PM.


This is primarily a tent camping tour, with provision for some RV's (for an extra fee).


Included in the basic fee are tent camping facilities, route maps, SAG service, and meals. Dinners Wednesday through Saturday, and breakfasts Thursday through Sunday are provided and served in a pavilion at the campground. There will be group campfires with S'mores and munchies in the evenings, as well as light snacks in the afternoons.


SummerTour is sponsored by the Tri-County Bicycle Association (TCBA) of Lansing, MI and is open to all capable interested bicyclists. You need not be a member of any organization to participate.
