U.S. Bicycle Routes in Michigan
  • Group biking photoThe U.S. Bicycle Route System is a national network of regionally and nationally significant bicycling routes spanning multiple states. The purpose of the U.S. Bicycle Route (USBR) numbering system is to facilitate travel between states on routes identified as suitable for long-distance cycling.

    U.S. Bicycle Route 35 is a 500-mile route that runs from Indiana through Michigan to Sault Ste. Marie, Canada, generally following the Lake Michigan shoreline and through the eastern Upper Peninsula.

    U.S. Bicycle Route 20 is an east-west route of just over 300 miles and connects Marine City on the east with Ludington on the west.

    While some portions of each route are signed, users should not rely solely on signs for navigating the route.

    These maps and turn-by-turn directions serve as an aid to long-distance touring bicyclists who are comfortable riding with traffic. They are not intended to be a substitute for a person's use of reasonable care. The users of this information bear full responsibility for their own safety.
