I’m in the very early stages of planning my route around Lake Superior, tentatively scheduled for late Spring of next year. So far, it looks like 9 days from Sault Ste. Marie, through Duluth, and hitting Thunder Bay on the 10th day. Then it’s 7 days in Canada and just like the Lake Huron tour, a lot of the Trans-Canada Highway. This time, however, I’m hoping to find some alternative routes–even if it means a bit more mileage and non-paved roads. I’ve outfitted a Surly Disc Trucker (steel frame) that should be up to the task. I just need to make sure that I’m up to the task as well. I suspect the Canadian side of the lake will likely be the most challenging of all 5 lakes.
