With the Cherry Roubaix cancellation it leaves the entire state without a road race to crown the state champions. Which is sad. So we are unofficially hosting the race. Champions will be crowned and jerseys (hopefully) will be awarded. This is as unofficially official as it gets.
This will not be by USAC categories but rather by distance. Most likely have Juniors, Open and Masters. Skinny tire bikes required (no TT or ebikes).
Woodward Loop is Back!! June 27, 2021 we will meet on this”must do” ride at 7:30 am from Shain Park in Birmingham for the first wave start which goes to Pontiac and back for 17 miles at about 18mph outbound, uphill, then fast pace back to Birmingham. The second wave starts at 8:30 am and will head south to Detroit on Woodward, skipping the Q-rails. Segment is 36 miles at moderate pace.
The Coast to Coast Gravel Grinder challenges bicyclists to race the setting sun as they cross the mighty Mitten, traversing 210 miles of dirt roads and rugged two-tracks, spanning Michigan’s lower peninsula, from the sunrise shores of Lake Huron at Au Gres, through Michigan farmlands and grasslands, the majestic Manistee National Forest, all the way to the sandy beaches of Lake Michigan at Ludington. Requires your own support vehicle or paid shuttle/support.
Too many miles? No support crew? Choose our convenient but challenging and scenic 100 mile loop out of Ludington (likely 9 am start). If Michigan is America’s high five, the Coast to Coast Gravel Grinder is how you earn it.
Clinic and practice race for new riders, plus full range of categories for experienced racers. Full details at http://www.springtrainingseries.com/.
