This year’s family-friendly five-day bicycle tour features routes on roads, the Pere Marquette Trail and the White Pine Trail as well as the Cadillac Pathways (if you are interested in dirt trail riding), all from the convenience of a single camping location, Veteran’s Memorial Park Campground in Marion, MI.
The tour will begin on Wednesday, July 15 and end on Sunday, July 19, 2020. Camping will be available starting on Tuesday, July 14 after 4 PM at no additional charge. On Sunday riders will return to the campground in time to pack and leave by 2 PM.
Daily routes will vary between 25 and 75, with various options. 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). Be ready to “Ride Your Own Story.” Take your bicycle anywhere. Do your own thing. We’ll be back in the same campground at the end of the day.
Included in the basic fee are tent camping facilities, route maps, Use of RideWithGPS, SAG service, and meals. Dinners Wednesday through Saturday, and breakfasts Thursday through Sunday are provided and served in a pavilion at the campground. SummerTour has our own Campground Hosts to help you with questions and provide you with light snacks daily in the afternoons as well as group campfires with S'mores and munchies some evenings.
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. The first 150 entries will be accepted.

New this year we will use a RideWithGPS Experience.
This is a new option from RideWithGPS. It allows you to have Turn by Turn voice navigation on your cell phone for the tour with a free RideWithGPS app without needing to create a Ride With GPS account. It also allows you to have other information about the tour on your phone like meal times, SAG phone numbers, and allows us to send you messages to communicate important information. This is all offline so it can be download before the tour and will not use any data or require cell service during use. You can also download the RideWithGPS files to your GPS. To learn more please go to https://ridewithgps.com/help/mobile-app-experiences/ If you have any questions please email firstname.lastname@example.org
All registered SummerTour riders will receive a link after all routes are finalized.
