A bikepacking expedition in Michigan? Watch as this group traces an iconic route around the remote U.P.
The Upper Peninsula of Michigan (the “U.P.”) is a wild region of rivers, deep forests, dirt roads, and abandoned mining towns. And all of it pinched between two Great Lakes.
“Unforgettable,” a short film shot and edited by Aaron Peterson, documents one group’s bikepacking journey around the U.P. in 2021. The ride started at the tip of the Keweenaw Peninsula and headed counterclockwise for 16 days back to where it began.
Follow the expedition, dubbed “Project Adventrus,” with riders Todd Poquette, Marc Salm, Kelsy Kellermann, and Liz Belt as they pedal 1,650 miles literally around the entire U.P.
