Along The Way - US 2

2,500 Miles in two sections across the upper tier of American states. The broken section gives eager riders an opportunity to ride through the Canadian forests by crossing the border to fill in the gap.  REALLY a great trip.

Michigan

The 310 miles between Hurley, WI and St Ignace, Michigan will sometimes take just over six hours and sometimes it may be a nine hour trip. After all, for the most part it's a two lane highway and you share the roadway with every conceivable type of vehicle, from large semi rigs to tourists hauling a pop-up tent trailer. The addition of a passing lane in many areas during the last few years has greatly diminished the length of time caught behind slow traffic.

The best way to plan an enjoyable ride along US-2 in Michigan is to stop at a tourst trap or scenic overlook every 30 miles and just relax. This is the essence of an Upper Peninsula ride. Lake Michigan is often only yards away from the route and makes it unlikely that you will get through the day without having to wear a sweatshirt to keep the chill from your body. 

Lodging prices can be steep - the reliable weather tourist season is only four  months long and many of the motels must attempt to make a years wage from that 16 weeks. When searching for a reasonable rate look for a place that is probably open all year, the rate will be better and the accommodations more than just a bunk and a web chair with a view of the lake.

There are several casinos along the route, or within 25 miles. Don't expect the glitz of Las Vegas, but they do offer a viable entertainment alternative if you happen to be making the trip on cold, windy, or wet days - and those conditions are frequent.

If an overnight stay in a campground or hike into the woods is anticipated, be sure to bring along some good bug spray. You might even want to invest in a net equipped hood - the mosquitoes and black flies ARE that bad. Be especially alert for deer around dawn and dusk, but understand a 200 pound doe or buck can ruin your trip in an instant.
