Description

From Escanaba to St. Ignace the route stays mostly on US 2. This highway is very busy with both recreational and commercial traffic, but generally has wide paved shoulders. In general, when US 2 is directly on Lake Michigan shore or well inland it is flat, but in between there are numerous climbs over coastal bluffs which provide spectacular views of the lake.

The Mackinac Bridge between St. Ignace and Mackinaw City, which connects Michigan's Upper and Lower Peninsulas, is part of I-75, and bicycles are prohibited. Adventure Cycling recommends riding the ferry to Mackinac Island to cross the Straits of Mackinac. No motorized vehicles are permitted on the island, which is 80% state park, and 20% privately owned. The Manitowoc Alternate can be used as a shortcut between central Wisconsin and the lower Michigan peninsula. It shortens the route by 215 miles by using a ferry across Lake Michigan.

ABOUT ADVENTURE CYCLING MAPS
Adventure Cycling maps are created by cyclists, for cyclists, and they are some of the best available for those in search of discovery and adventure in North America. The maps reflect the association's research as well as suggestions from thousands of cyclists who have explored the Adventure Cycling Route Network. Adventure Cycling develops the best cross-country, loop, coastal, and inland cycling routes available, with turn-by-turn directions, detailed navigational instructions for the tricky sections, and elevation profiles in the high country.

The maps are waterproof and designed to fit in a handlebar-bag window or jersey pocket. The maps provide information specifically for cyclists: the location of bike shops, sources for food and water, and listings of overnight accommodations including camping facilities, small hotels, and cyclists-only lodging.
