From the Promoter:
Race the setting sun as you cross the mighty Mitten – from coast to stunning freshwater coast.
The 2019 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. May require a support vehicle (shuttle service may or may not be available).
Too many miles? No support crew? Choose our convenient but challenging and scenic 100-mile loop out of Ludington. If Michigan is America’s high five, the Coast to Coast Gravel Grinder is how you earn it.
