Routes
Your ride/registration begins at 6 a.m. at Menominee Elementary School, 815 Discovery Lane, Plymouth. The Culver Academies and the picturesque town of Culver are on the route with a SAG at the Culver Depot. Our tour winds through the Twin Lakes area, starting point of the infamous Trail of Death. The Potawatomi Indian tribes populating the region were forcibly relocated to the west by the U.S. government–an event remembered by the statue of Chief Menominee along the route. A SAG will be located on the Menominee grounds.

Blueberry Festival
Plymouth is the home of the annual Blueberry Festival conducted during the four-day Labor Day Weekend (Sept. 2 - 6). After the BBC, enjoy the more than 500 craft booths, more than 100 food booths, shows and athletic events at Centennial Park. The festival annually attracts more than 500,000 people and you are invited to remain and enjoy a festive day or weekend. Camping is available at the Argos 4-H fairgrounds. For cost and reservation information, contact Kevin Holland at (574) 936-9154.
