Day 1 Part 6
I cross the Mackinaw Bridge. That in itself is an adventure with an over loaded bike sporting off road tires. I am forced onto the grating due to lane closures. Traffic is heavy enough that speeds canít exceed 20mph. I make it okay. I get back on terra firma, pull out my GPS and find that my route through the lower peninsula did not up load properly. Fortuntely, I did bring along my Michigan atlas and decided to head down M-23 to Cheboygan and a fill up. I average out to about 56 miles per gallon so far. I get out the map again and decided to see how far Old US-27 will take me to the south. I find that I can get all the way to Grayling, Michigan where I take North Down River Rd to Wakley/Chase Road and then down into the Mason Tract of the South Branch of the Ausable River.
