About the Leelenau Harvest Tour
The Leelanau Harvest Tour is one of the Cherry Capital Cycling Club’s (CCCC) largest fundraisers of the year. Contributions from the tour allow the CCCC to conduct a productive and meaningful grant program that supports bicycling projects that contribute to achieving their mission of promoting bicycling as part of a healthy lifestyle. Since 1999 the CCCC has proudly granted over $350,000 to local organizations seeking to do projects like this.
The Leelanau Harvest Tour is a great biking adventure for both families and single riders as the fall colors begin to show and apple trees are laden with fruit.
Starting and finishing at Herman Park in Suttons Bay, routes of approximately 20, 40, 64, and 100 miles wind throughout beautiful Leelanau County on excellent paved roads passing by farms, orchards, vineyards, dunes, and through quaint villages.
So come, ride, relax, and enjoy all that this beautiful peninsula has to offer.
After nine miles on the Leelanau Trail, the 20 mile route follows the east side of South Lake Leelanau then returns to the Trail to finish in Suttons Bay. Being mostly flat this is an ideal route for younger riders.
The 40 mile route begins the same as the short route then continues north along the east side of both North and South Lake Leelanau and passes though the village of Lake Leelanau before returning to Suttons Bay via M-22 from Setterbo Road.
After leaving the Leelanau Trail 10.5 miles south of Suttons Bay, the 64 mile route heads west through rolling countryside, north around Little Traverse Lake, through Lake Leelanau, up the east side of North Lake Leelanau and then returns to Suttons Bay via Setterbo Road and M-22.
The 100 mile route extends the 64 mile route north to the Grand Traverse Lighthouse at the tip of the Leelanau Peninsula and the village of Northport with more hills and scenic views.
