Northern Michigan Mountain Bike Association's biggest fundraiser of the year is July 25. You can help support our trail maintenance and advocacy efforts by having an unbelievably fun day in the woods with friends. Yep. That's all you have to do. 

We pick and choose the route carefully to help riders explore some of the more well-ridden and undiscovered trails of the Traverse City Trail Network. Each year is different, and each course offers a unique way to learn and connect the trails! This is the only day of the year many of these trails are marked in any way, so if you're looking to expand your trail knowledge, join us! 

2021 offers a unique new addition, too. This year, we're linking GOREC to the TCTF for the first time! Greilick Outdoor Recreation & Education Center sits close to the TCTN and is growing a robust trail system of its own. We're excited to tie it in AND show you how to access it with this year's route. 

As many of you know, 2021 remains an uncertain time. We ask that you stay tuned for any changes to the event over the next several weeks, but don't worry; this thing is happening! 

*NEW* We're offering a virtual option, too! Ride the TCTF 25 mile course anytime between July 1 and July 18 to be entered to win one of four $25 gift cards to local bike shops. Already racing? Do the Virtual event to be entered to win a gift card AND throw it down on race day!
