Hello, cycling community.

As of today, we have suspended registration for the Arcadia Grit & Gravel. It is our sincere hope to be able to land on a new date and when/if that is determined, registration will open back up. Now for the bad news: there's a possibility that the AGG won't happen at all in 2020. This would be our last choice since it's a big fundraiser for the Pleasant Valley Community Center and brings much joy and positive energy to this sweet town on the shores of Lake Michigan. If the race is cancelled altogether, we'll offer some sort of compensation to those of you who have pre-registered. Please stay tuned.. we'll monitor the situation and make a determination as soon as we can.

In the meantime, thank you very much for your support, your understanding and your love of the cycling community. We're in this together and together we'll get through it. Be safe, stay healthy and help each other whenever you can.

Endoman’s home page says, “...our goal is to develop and promote a few great races here in the beautiful northwest lower peninsula of Michigan.” Well, we’re making good on that promise with the Arcadia Grit & Gravel Mountain Bike Race, to be held the third Saturday each May. 

The AG&G race spans territory covering two counties and is like no other in the state: a unique blend of wicked-tough gravel roads in northern Manistee County, some hidden-gem two-tracks and finally, the world-class single track of the Arcadia Dunes C.S. Mott Nature Preserve trail system in southern Benzie County. The Arcadia Dunes trail system is part of a 3000 acre preserve owned and under the stewardship of the Grand Traverse Regional Land Conservancy and to that organization, we are very grateful. Because, without their generous support this event wouldn’t be happening.

Here’s some info about the course: it’s tough. This may well be the longest 27-mile race you’ll ever gear up for. Even with miles of gravel roads, backwoods 2-tracks, and even some pavement, finishing this monster loop in less than 2 hours is going to be a challenge. Race Central will be at the Pleasant Valley Community Center in Arcadia, which is a block east of M22 on Glovers Lake Rd. When the gun goes off, racers will be on a 2 mile paved roll out, then the fun begins. Gravel roads with plenty of elevation gain, some secret two-tracks and the incredible Arcadia Dunes trail will round out the 27 miles. The Short Grit racers will experience most of the same course, just shorter portions of it. Both courses will be tough and gritty with a seriously big fun factor.
