Today the weather was perfect. It was one of those warm, clear fall day. There was a 14 mph headwind but the headwind just meant I had more time to enjoy the ride. The route was perfect also. It started out with a nice bike path leaving Mackinac then it went to my favorite small paved low volume roads with great scenery.

   I then rode through the famous 20 miles long tunnel of trees (M119) which was beautiful.

I had a beer and a burger at a quaint restaurant in Harbor Spring.
 Then the last 25 miles were on a great bike path going to Charlevoix.
