CHANGES HAVE BEEN MADE TO THE ROUTE.
On Wednesday, September 25, we were informed that a bridge near the Winslow/Waterford Township border (after the first rest stop on Saturday)
was closed by the county due to concerns about structural safety. We have added a detour and the cue sheets have been updated on the web site – please disregard previous versions. Unfortunately, this change has added 1.7 miles to the Traditional 75 mile and 100 mile routes. Please see updated cue sheets posted.
