Do you want to participate in a groundbreaking crazy UP biking adventure in August 2018? Read on your crazy diamond!
The U.P. is a bikers paradise. Whether it's mountain, fat bike, cyclocross, road, trike, triathlon or any other form of human powered cycle, the Upper Peninsula has the natural goods to deliver, you just need to show up and ride.
Tour Da Yoop is like no other. We are establishing a phenomenal bike route that circles the entire UP, staying off main highways as often as possible. The route is mostly paved, with some gravel. But we have available alternate routes for people to stick to the asphalt only.
Now is your chance to be part of this incredible journey. We are building the team of bikers to complete the entire 1,200 mile route over a 10 day period starting August 23rd and finishing September 1st in Manistique. Some adventurous and incredible athletes might try to do the entire 1,200 mile loop. But that is not necessary to participate.
We are looking for riders that can do at least 1 and as many as 10 sections (each one being around 120 miles), working as a team. To be physically fit for this ride be sure that you can ride a strong century in the 16 or faster mph range, and be an awesome positive attitude person. We will all start and finish each leg as one cohesive group, so all riders must be capable of sustaining long rides with good speed.
