July 11, 2018 – July 15, 2018 all-day America/Chicago Timezone

Calling All Top Cats!
This is called the Lake Michigan Ride because we circumnavigate most of Lake Michigan! This ride totals about 980 miles spread over 4 days of beautiful, scenic riding and 1 day off the motorcycle to rest your tushy and visit Macinac Island. We will experience many things including but not limited to riding the S.S. Badger ferry across the lake, visiting the Sleeping Bear Dunes National Park, having our own campfires on the Lake Michigan shore, crossing the 5th largest, 7 mile suspension bridge in the world, seeing the Tahquamenon Falls State Park and Pictured Rocks Lake Shore, riding the Tunnel of Trees which is considered one of the most scenic motorcycle routes in the state of Michigan and as noted, spending a day on Mackinac Island,.
So come join me in achieving this motorcycle riding milestone and crossing all of these things and more off your bucket list!
Please R.S.V.P. Mike Bradbury at bradbundy@comcast.net and immediately book your ferry tickets and reserve your lodgings. Ask for Top Cats or Mike Bradbury’s group to take one of the 9 rooms blocked at each lodging. The absolute deadline to do this is by May 31. This is the limit of some of the lodgings after which the rooms will not be available.
First come, first served – no exceptions can be made!
