Nice Country trip for the people in the city. Takes you through Clarkston and Davisburg with a couple options for different routes. This is fairly 'hilly' for Southeast Michigan. Not many notable places to stop, but downtown Clarkston is home to both the Woodshop and Union. Both made world famous by the mac & cheese and Kid Rock, you may even get the opportunity to see him.
Nice curves and views of the water. Stop at the corner of Rochester Rd and Rochester Rd (yes, Rochester and Rochester) for a beer on the rooftop overlooking Lakeville Lake. Join this ride with Orion Rd and it is a good mix for a quick ride, just watch out for rush hour coming out of Downtown Rochester.
Start off in Lake Orion or Rochester. Short and sweet but one of my favorites for a quick local ride. Nice curves, beautiful houses, 2 cider mills and good restaurant/bars on either end. If your in the area it is worth your time. If you end at Rochester Rd, head north and ride around Lakeville Lake, another great route.
