U.S. Bicycle Routes in Michigan
The 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.
