Webster's dictionary defines a circle as "a perfectly round shape: a line that is curved so that its ends meet and every point on the line is the same distance from the center." A circle has no beginning or end points, unlike the Lake Superior Circle Tour that has an infinite number of both.
Lake Superior is the largest body of fresh water on our precious planet covering over 31,700 square miles. The lake itself is 350 miles from north to south and if you want to ride around its entire length, you better give yourself enough time to cover over 1300 miles.
Trips around Lake Superior began back in 1960 with the completion of the Trans-Canada Highway RT 17 near Wawa, Ontario, and are one of the best riding opportunities in the northern Midwest.
Choosing a starting point is probably the most difficult decision you will have to make on this magnificent adventure. The best resource I’ve found for any motorcycle rider looking to make this trip is the free Ride Lake Superior Guide.
