An approximate 3 hour, 108 mile ride from Plymouth to Brighton, MI through Waterloo, Pinckney and Brighton State Recreation areas. Lots of winding, tree-lined roads along water.

Ride will proceed rain or shine, top up or top down.

The ride will be of the parade/caravan type. Turn-by-turn directions will be provided. An ice cream/BIO break will occur at the half-way point.

Driving Directions to the Point of Origin:

From Westbound M-14:
Exit 18 - Beck Road
Turn left (South) and proceed 1.5 mi to Ann Arbor Trail (Traffic Light) where you will turn left and then proceed 0.5 miles to Plymouth Township Park. Turn left to enter the park. (The site of origin of many of Turbo Mike's rides.)

From Eastbound M-14:
Exit 18 - Beck Road
Turn right (South) and proceed 1.2 mi to Ann Arbor Trail (Traffic Light) where you will turn left and then proceed 0.5 miles to Plymouth Township Park. Turn left to enter the park. (The site of origin of many of Turbo Mike's rides.)

I know many have had difficulty finding the Park in the past due to GPS units taking you to a non-existent location. If your GPS allows, you may enter the following Latitude and Longitude points.

Latitude:
42.367173 or 42 Hrs, 22 min, 1.8228 secs.
Longitude:
-83.500605 or (-)83 Hrs, 30 min, 2.1774 secs.


There will be bathroom facilities at the point of origin.
A McDonalds restaurant and Shell Gas station is located North of the freeway at exit 18, within 0.8 miles, at Five mile road.

RUN GUIDELINES:
1. Arrive BEFORE Noon, with a FULL tank, and an EMPTY bladder.
2. Use your turn signal so everyone in the caravan can anticipate the turns.
3. Stay in close proximity to the car ahead, so no one gets separated from the group.
4. Two-way radios will be used. About ten loaner radios are available for use by those who need one.
5. The speed limit will be observed (and occasionally adhered to, particularly in town or congested/residential areas.)
6. Collector points will follow any instances where we may momentarily become separated.
7. Solo drivers are invited to drive mid-pack, so as to be less dependent on written directions.
8. A Waiver of Liability will be available for your signature prior to receiving your "Directions Packet".
9. Organizer Cell numbers for any concerns prior to or during the ride: Jim-734.612.5400 Carter-248.231.1031
