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!
