Amishland and Lakes, based in Howe, Indiana is a three day bike tour of Amish countryside and Michigan lakes. There are wide open spaces, clean country air and friendly people. Amishland and Lakes is famous for great SAG food (watermelons, peaches, blueberries, bananas and fresh baked cookies). On Friday evening there are two warm up routes with the longer route going into Shipshewana. The Saturday routes offer smooth, quiet roads, where buggies are numerous and cars are few. There are Amish bakeries, restaurants and homemade ice cream parlors along the route for riders who want to "get a taste" of the local flavor. The Sunday routes head north into southwestern Michigan and wind along quiet, gently rolling wooded hills dotted with lakes. This will be the 40th annual Amishland and Lakes ride.
