Manitoulin Island Tour
The Island is calling. Those that have ridden before say that something special happens the second they lay 2 wheels on it. It’s a feeling, a culture, a realization that time stands still. Ojibwe First Nations understood this mythical essence long ago, and aptly named it ‘Spirit Island’. 

Exploring Manitoulin by motorcycle is perhaps the best way. You feel the road, you smell the crispness in the air, you marvel at how connected yet unconnected you really are.

When you hear the calling, you follow it.  When the sun goes down, you pull over. Not because you are tired, but out of respect to rest the wheels that have gotten you here.
You eat not by choice but out of necessity to power your journey.  Food is a time to reflect. Food is bountiful in the north.  
You stop and linger.  Along your journey you stop often to learn from those that rode before you.  You absorb the smells, and engage with the people that inspire you to carry on.
Sometimes you just need a place where you can kick stand the bike, lay in the grass, stare at the sky and be humbled.   
Just like your soul it can become undone.  Your bike is part of you, and knowing it can be put back together reassures you to carry on.
