To take advantage of the Chamber of Commerce type weather on Labor Day Saturday, we rented hybrid bikes at Latitude 45 ($15 for 4 hours) and set sail from right behind their store. We rode west past Bay Harbor and then back east to Bay View (about 15 miles roundtrip) with a stop downtown for lunch.
The path is smooth and flat with spectacular views. We actually enjoyed the parts away from downtown Petoskey best because they were less crowded. Several families and weekend warriors out enjoying the morning.
Glad we decided to rent instead of hauling the bikes up for the long weekend. The rentals were great (same bike in store was going for $519) and they gave us a cable lock so we could make stops along the way. We brought our own bike helmets but those were included in the rental price.
We have done parts of the TART in Traverse City and thought this route was even nicer. Wish I lived closer so I could enjoy on a regular basis.
