This event is meant to be an introduction to Adventure by Bike and not limited to only those with bike packing experience. You must be an experienced rider and capable of riding 5-6 hours a day. All bikes are allowed but Fargos are preferred of course!
This is not a race but rather a cycling exploration with two days of riding the gravel back roads of Manistee National Forest near Hesperia, MI and two nights of rustic camping. Participants will Adventure by Bike, carry their camping gear, water, energy food, tools, and tubes. We will provide light breakfast Saturday and Sunday morning along with snacks, dinner and Founders beer Saturday night so carrying food and cooking supplies is not necessary.
There is no sag service and no course markings (GPX and route maps will be provided). You should have knowledge of how to work on your bike in the event of flats, broken chains, etc. There is no drop bag service allowed, no car shuttles or family moving gear for you. Tent camping only, no motor homes allowed.
