Glad you asked, Zane. I’m sick of how the Midwest always gets short shrift when people talk about adventure destinations. Michigan is full of top-notch sailing, hiking, mountain-biking and kayaking. Ohio has amazing forests and shoreline. Indiana—well, two out of three isn’t bad. These springtime rides will make you grateful to live in the nation’s heartland.
