Aug 11, 2017

MARQUETTE, MI--   U.S. Senator Gary Peters is taking a five-day, seven-county motorcycle tour across the U.P. and Western Michigan next week.

It’s the second such #RideMI trip for the avid motorcyclist, who says he will meet with constituents to discuss his efforts to help grow Michigan’s small businesses, bolster the manufacturing sector, and expand critical infrastructure.

The tour begins Monday in Marquette County. He’ll make additional stops throughout the week in Baraga, Ontonagon, Gogebic, Iron, and Dickinson counties.

As part of the tour, Peters, a former Lieutenant Commander in the U.S. Navy Reserve,’ will present 50th anniversary commemorative lapel pins to Vietnam veterans in the Upper Peninsula in honor of their service in the Vietnam War.
