We camped our first night, the night before we ride, on the grounds of the Montague High School. We get breakfast and dinner in the school’s cafeteria. Lunch we find on the road. This year there are about 400 riders. Although 50 won’t join us until Traverse City. Three quarters of the riders are from out of state. 60% are men and 40% are women. The average age is 55. The oldest rider is 83 and the youngest is 8.
