The annual Tour de Leelanau bicycle race takes place next Sunday (May 25) and features international and US pro cycling teams on a USA Pro Tour sanctioned race. The course winds through the hills of Leelanau County in northern Michigan and features a variety of climbs and sprints that create an atmosphere reminiscent of a European road race.

If you happen to be attending it this year, bring your camera because the race organizers are sponsoring a $500 Tour de Leelanau photo contest where your photo can also be the cover of their 2009 publication!

Joel has some cool Tour de Leelanau photos and you can see many more in the Tour de Leelanau group on Flickr and in this cool Tour de Leelanau slideshow.

I also wrote a Tour de Leelanau post on Leelanau.com that you might like. Have a great weekend!
