U.S. Bicycle Route System > Corridor 35 Implementation

Agenda Item 2, USBR 35 Mission Statement

(1/2) > >>

Paul V:
This thread is for use by the USBR 35 Michigan Corridor committee.

The board will discuss and approve a mission statement for the Michigan section of USBR 35.

Draft mission statement:

The Michigan United States Bicycle Route 35 will run along the Lake Michigan coast north to Sault Ste Marie, and will pass through beach, harbor and tourist towns along the Lake.

MarkV45:
Suggested revisons - The Michigan segment of US Bicycle Route 35 will stretch from New Buffalo on the Michigan/Indiana line north along the Lake Michigan coastline to Sault Ste Marie in the Upper Peninsula.  Along the way this scenic route will pass through lively and fun beach, harbor and tourist towns, and tranquil farmlands and forests.

Paul V:
I like that a lot.  Fun beach towns!

Paul V:
I am copying this comment from Larry Sullivan:

"If the intent is to keep the trail in close proximity to Lake Michigan, the Mission Statement will need to be altered due to the fact that once one goes north of St. Ignace, the trail gets further and further from Lake Michigan and closer and closer to Lake Huron and Lake Superior."

Perhaps a change to clarify:

The Michigan segment of US Bicycle Route 35 will stretch from New Buffalo on the Michigan/Indiana line north along the Lake Michigan coastline, crossing the Mackinac Bridge to Sault Ste Marie in the Upper Peninsula.  Along the way this scenic route will pass through lively and fun beach, harbor and tourist towns, and tranquil farmlands and forests.

Paul V:
Since our route now crosses the Straights of Mackinac to Mackinac Island and St. Ignace, the mission statement should be amended to read as follows:

The Michigan segment of US Bicycle Route 35 will stretch from New Buffalo on the Michigan/Indiana line north along the Lake Michigan coastline, crossing the Straits of Mackinac to Sault Ste Marie in the Upper Peninsula.  Along the way this scenic route will pass through lively and fun beach, harbor and tourist towns, and tranquil farmlands and forests.”
