This adventure is led by our knowledgable local guides and begins at our shop in Suttons Bay. We embark down the paved Leelanau Trail into Traverse City, passing farms, orchards, and vineyards along the way. About halfway into our journey, we make a detour at Shady Lane Cellars for a guided wine tasting paired with chef-selected charcuterie and cheese. Following our pleasant detour, we hop back on our bikes for our last leg into Traverse City.
Arriving at the pier, we have a moment to change and get ready for our sail back. This is all thanks to our support van, which has transported all of your personal belongings that weren’t needed for the bike ride!
Following an intro from the captain and crew prior to embarking we toast to the day with local wine and craft beer. As we set sail, your tour guides will transform into servers. On our tour back from Grand Traverse Bay we will enjoy a dinner hosted by Traverse City's Raduno restruant. Prepare to be wowed by Chef Silverman's authentic and passionate approach to food, influenced by her remarkable career as a chef in Italy. She will mesmerize your taste buds with an artfully paired farm-to-table meal on board the ship. It will be a dinner to remember!
For those of you who are interested in sailing there will be various opportunities to help the crew rig the sails, amongst other tasks. Enjoy this once in a lifetime opportunity to join the sailing team on Lake Michigan--bragging rights included!
