For many people, lake effect means snow along Michigan's Great Lakes' coasts, but in the U.P. it's something more. Lake effect is our unquenchable year-round passion for water and we have millions of gallons to share with you. Fresh. Unsalted. Our lakes & beaches are stunningly beautiful.
Whatever your biking style, the U.P. has the scenic byways, the varied terrain and thrilling races to create hours of outdoor adventures for you, your family and friends. Come to the U.P. and discover what is waiting for you here.
