The LARide “Cherry Capital” CycleTour 2021, is an interactive, slow to medium-paced 12 mile loop bike ride, open to the public, where riders visit locations designed by landscape architects throughout Traverse City. They will hear details about the featured projects from the professionals who actually worked on the projects or were involved in the development of the projects.

We will explore cityscapes, parks, trail systems, the waterfront, sustainable landscapes, botanical gardens, and historic places, all of which were designed and/or created by Landscape Architects and their allied professionals.

Every ride includes “Lecture Sites” and “Mini Stops” where planners, advocates, and technical staff give interactive presentations to the group. CEU’s are also available for each ride. An “After-Party” is included at the end of the cycle tour for all participants. New this year will be “Photography Workshop” which will be included in the ride at no extra cost. Professional photographer John Robert Williams, will be joining us to offer tips and suggestions for taking memorable photographs of the many sites that will be visited. Proceeds from sponsorships and contributions support MiASLA and DEI scholarships, mentoring programs, Diversity, Equity and Inclusion projects – opening “On Ramps” to careers and opportunities.
