Ride Route Advice - Lake Superior Loop Around Ontario to Duluth, MN
I am seeking some advice from riders who have done the loop around Lake Superior from Sault Saint Marie to Duluth, MN. I am considering riding this as a route to get to the rally in Minnesota next year.
How long would this loop take (miles or days riding)?
Copper Harbor won't work on the route I want to take
I just checked the map and found that Copper Harbor is on the Michigan side of Lake Superior, so I can't go that way for what I want to do.
My intent is to take routes 17 And 61 in Ontario, Canada and loop the top side (North side) of Lake Superior to go from Sault St. Marie to Thunder Bay, Ontario and then on to Duluth, MN.
Sorry, I did not make myself clear in the original post.
Stop at Betty's Pies for a meal or a snack

Fun from the soo to Duluth
2 days is needed to ride and enjoy the scenery. Check out the town of Rossport, situated on the shores of superior. Like they say... You will not forget this small place. We stayed there once and enjoyed the experience. Once in Duluth you may want to check out the Aerostitch factory. I have done the north side of superior several times . It is one of my favorites. By Ontario standards, I find the hwy rt for this leg of your trip to be in good condition. Dress warm as the wind off the lake can be chilly. I am also thinking of the rally in Minnesota.it would be my first BMW rally. But I would cross in the soo into Michigan going west. It would be new scenery to me. And I am also planning to keep going through to S.D. Wyoming, montana,Utah , Colorado ,,,and back to Ontario. Sounds like a great LOOP. I have posted in the forum that covers this geography for tips on routes and highlights. Enjoy your trip!!!
Happy trails ...rob.
