Lake Michigan Bike Trip – Day 4 Cedar River to Manistique

Back to sunshine and another great day biking in October

Distance 84 miles (303)

Feet of Climb 1030′ (5,122′)

Maximum Speed 25.8 mph

  It is great to still be biking in October. What a chilly but pretty day. Today was our coldest day starting at 45 degrees but warming up to about 60 degrees. I had the right cloths so the colder weather was fine. I had a 10 mph headwind for the first half of the day but then I turned to the east and that headwind turned to a cross wind that finally got my average speed above 15 mph.  
I rode along Rte 35 and Rte 2 for most of the day. These were highways with large shoulders. I miss the smaller rural roads from a few days ago. Some of today’s ride was right along the lake which made for gorgeous views.
