M-204 Duck Lake Road

 

Duke Lake Road, more commonly own as "204" is a great road to take if you want to traverse quickly across the middle of the county. There are wide bike lanes and you are highly visible to motorists on this road. You can also access a number of north/south roads off of M-204. If you ride west from the village of Suttons bay you will climb a long gradual hill that is an absolute blast to hammer up if you are lucky and have the wind behind you. This is a rare occurrence because the wind will most likely be in your face if there is any at all. After you reach the top you roll down into the town of Lake Leelanau and then continue on until you reach M-22 again on the west side of the county.
