A Ride with a Cause
This is Benzie Sunrise Rotary’s 13th annual Bike Fest. Last year the pandemic caused a pause in the event, but more than 180 cyclists participated in the Pandemic Pedal and either rode close to home in Michigan or joined us virtually from places like Norway, Australia and on the Skyline Drive of the Blue Ridge Parkway.
With vaccination rates increasing in Michigan we are excited to return to an in-person Up North Bike Fest scheduled for Saturday, August 21 at Crystal Mountain Golf & Ski Resort in Thompsonville, Michigan*.
This year we are offering three cycling events for your Up North adventure:
For those who like to explore the highways and byways of Benzie and Manistee Counties, we are offering the Tour de Pie road bike tours of 61-, 45- and 30-miles.
For those who prefer the thrill of racing as a team, we are offering the men’s and women’s Team Time Trial of 45 miles.
And for those who hunger for the challenge of gravel backroads, there will be the 36- or 20-mile Gonzo Gravel, a men’s and women’s gravel race.
Check out our Course Information page to find the fun that is just right for you.
We are thrilled to announce that Five Shores Brewing Company is sponsoring Gonzo Gravel, and they have designed a jersey any rider—racing or touring—may purchase. Orders MUST be placed at the time of registration.
