Lenawee Bike Tour

Since 2017, the Adrian Rotary Club has hosted the Lenawee Bike Tour in September in Adrian, Michigan. In 2022, I participated for the third time.

The Ride

There are many routes on offer for riders of all experience levels. In 2022, riders could choose from four different distances; 25 miles, 40 miles, 64 miles and a family fun ride. In 2022 as in my previous two rides (2018 and 2021), I did the 64 mile ride.

The routes are updated annually based on the feedback of participants. All routes explore Lenawee county in and around Adrian, Michigan.

Registration for the route supports the Adrian Rotary Club. The cost of registration is $40. Along with your registration you get the following:

  • Coffee and Donuts before the ride
  • Timing chip for the ride
  • Water and snacks at the SAG (Support and Gear) stations
  • Hot dog and beer lunch when you return

My Ride Experience

I always enjoy this ride with friends. In the past, there were a few parts of the route that I didn’t enjoy. There were roads on the route that I wasn’t comfortable riding.

In 2022, they asked one of my favorite local route planners to design the rides and it was beautiful. Throughout the ride, we passed through fields and orchards ready for harvest. The apples, cabbage, and peppers were beautiful in the autumn sun.

Post Tour Entertainment at Artalicious

Following the Bike Tour, you can head into downtown Adrian (a few blocks to the east) and check out the Fine Art Fair “Artalicious.” I’ve never been but I have heard there is great art, food, and entertainment for the weekend. If you are looking for a fun and relaxing weekend, these two events are where it’s at.

Check out other cycling events in Southern Michigan like Hubfest and the AAA 200K.

Hope to see you out there riding! ~KiteBikeVan
