I live in Charlevoix with my wife, Anne.  I have a son, Oliver, who lives in Bloomington, Indiana.  I was born in Indiana and grew up there, in a small town near Fort Wayne. Anne and I visited the Charlevoix area in our boat about six years ago and really liked the town and entire area.  We purchased a summer home north of downtown Charlevoix and one year later decided to sell our home in Indiana and move to Charlevoix to live here full time.  What attracted us to this area was the natural beauty, the charm of the communities, and the friendliness of the people; but one of the major reasons we chose to move here was the quality of the area bike trails.

  Come out and ride the new mountain bike trails in Boyne City! Top of Michigan Mountain Bike Association will be showing off their School Forest Trail (nine miles of trails built by TOMMBA volunteers), and there will be a ribbon cutting for the Avalanche Trail (nine miles of professionally built, sustainable trails with beginner, intermediate and expert trails).
