You are halfway done with Shoreline West. Welcome to Layover Day!

After a few challenging days of riding, you owe it to yourself to take it easy during our layover day! The Traverse Bay area is one of the top vacation destinations in the Midwest, and you’re sure to see why as you explore all of the wonders that it has to offer – from local wineries and breweries to kayak tours to independent boutiques, you’re sure to find something that strikes your fancy.

For those whose legs are still itchy for more pedaling, feel free to cruise up the Old Mission Peninsula, which is known for its beautiful homes, bright cherry orchards, and plentiful wineries. It is also possible to visit the Old Mission Lighthouse, established in 1870 and deactivated in 1933. These routes are unsupported but you’ll find plenty of places to fuel and hydrate.

Today starts with Dawn Fresh serving us breakfast, but not lunch or dinner, so you’re free to enjoy some of the best restaurants in northern Michigan. Check at the info desk to see if there are any coupons for local dining and attractions. LMB will also offer you a chance to rest your legs but still see the area with two charters today, One to Old Mission Peninsula on a tour of local wineries and the second on a rambling tour of several local downtown breweries and distilleries. For those who want to see the town on their own, there is an extensive bicycling infrastructure along with public transportation and rideshare options, so get out there and enjoy!!
