Anyone here participated in this ride? Believe it leaves out of Grand Rapids but not sure when. Would be interested in some details, how many bikes, stops etc. Thanks for any info.

Not really, someone on another forum mentioned it in passing. I believe it starts in GR & ends at the Mackinac Bridge, I know they run thru the nite,picking up riders along the way. I'll try to google it, maybe I can find some info.

The year i went it was 33 degrees in Gaylord with sleet. Its real, it happens. It aint piling up, but it spits.

that 3rd weekend is the same as Fowlerville Easyriders. Its a real strange weather weekend.

I've done it a few times. I was there the year it was in the 30's in Gaylord. It's happened a few times. It cracks me up, people are running into Glenns to buy socks and warm clothes. It'll be in the 50's or 60's downstate but colder up here. I live up here so I ride down and then ride back with the group. It is a decent ride. I haven't done it in a few years though, I guess it got old for me. I've found over the years that I mostly prefer to ride alone.
