Bus Information for Saturday

For the Saturday Bus ride, we try to have the buses leave in a staggered start at 8:30, depending if people have their bikes prepared and loaded.

The buses will stop for lunch somewhere along the route and arrive in Saugatuck sometime around 3, if all goes well.

The key is to be patient and have fun!

I-75 Southbound Lanes are Closed South of Detroit

If you are taking the PALM bus from Gibraltar on Saturday morning, please note that there is construction and also detours along I-75 south of Detroit. If you can, avoid this section of I-75, or at least allow yourself extra time for the drive to Gibraltar.

Saugatuck Site Update

Saugatuck Note

PRIVATE SAGs:  Because of limited parking space, only private SAGs who are camping using tents will be allowed at Saugatuck High School.  If you are a private SAG and using a motorhome or trailer  you will have to camp overnight at Douglas Elementary School located 1.7 miles away at 261 West Randolph Street. A porta john will be available there but no access to the school itself.  A map to Douglas Elementary School is included. The area will be patrolled by law enforcement overnight. We are sorry for any inconvenience.

ALL PALM PARTICIPANTS: No camping is allowed at either site on Friday night (June 23). You will not be able to set up camp (tent, motorhome or trailer) before 12:00 noon Saturday June 24.

You can find a map to the elementary school from the high school here, and a Google earth picture of the parking lot here.
