About The Course

Michigan’s Upper Peninsula (a.k.a the Yoop) is a bikers paradise and Tour Da Yoop is like no other.

We have established a phenomenal 10 section, 1,200 mile bike route that circles the entire Yoop, while riding on paved roads and off main highways as often as possible.  All road bikes are

On most of the sections you will see more wildlife than cars.

Each section offers beautiful views and exciting challenges.

Each section averages about 120 miles.

The sections are awesome, but they are not leisurely rides in the park, they are all a CHALLENGE.  However, the beauty, serenity and sense of accomplishment that comes with it is well worth it.

About Us

James Studinger, founder of Call of the Yooper and Tour Da Yoop, Eh has a vision – for people to “Reconnect With Nature”.   James is from the Upper Peninsula and wants as many people as possible to enjoy all that Michigan’s Upper Peninsula (aka the Yoop) has to offer. He’s hiked from Lake Superior to Lake Michigan through the middle of the Hiawatha National Forest, canoed from Lake Superior to Lake Michigan and everything in between.  In 2018 the course was plotted and experienced by a few lucky riders.

In 2018 James and M & R Events teamed up to bring you an experience of a lifetime.  We offer a 10 day 1,200 mile stage race along with individual section rides. The course goes around the entire perimeter of the U.P..  Not only is this one of the toughest rides you’ll ever do, it will be one of the most beautiful rides you’ll ever do. We invite you to get off the beaten path and experience something incredible, come see Michigan’s Upper Peninsula at it’s best.
