Peters Will Ride Through Muskegon, Ironwood, Escanaba, Traverse City, Bay City, Lansing & Novi to Meet with Michiganders and Discuss Ways to Position Michigan Communities for the Future

DETROIT, MI – U.S. Senator Gary Peters (MI) announced that he will begin his annual motorcycle tour across Michigan this Wednesday in Muskegon. Peters, who is an avid motorcycle rider, will travel across the state to talk about “Paving the Way for Michigan’s Future.” 

“My favorite way to travel across our state and meet with Michiganders is by riding my motorcycle,” said Senator Peters. “It’s an opportunity to not only reflect on the progress we’ve made together but to look ahead – and that’s why this year’s tour is called ‘Paving the Way for Michigan’s Future.’”

“I’m looking forward to talking about everything from increasing support for workforce development programs, standing with Michigan workers and veterans, upgrading our roads and bridges, helping farmers address threats to their crops, and growing our state’s defense footprint.”

Peters will be making stops in Muskegon, Ironwood, Escanaba, Traverse City, Bay City, Lansing, and Novi. He will start in Muskegon on Wednesday, August 9th and conclude the tour on Thursday, August 17th in Novi. During the tour, Peters will be joined on the ride by veterans, motorcycle safety advocates, workers, and constituents. Peters, who founded the bipartisan Senate Motorcycle Caucus, will ride more than 1,300 miles across the state. Additional information regarding his stops will be announced in the coming days.
