Getting Back to Traverse City

This year we are partnering with BATA Bus Bike and Ride. BATA will be hauling cyclist and bike back to Traverse City form the Sutton’s Bay High School. The busses carry 11 bikes and even more people. It’s only $3 per person and it’s a great way help save on fossil fuel so please consider leaving your car in Traverse City, riding and having some fun at the finish party before hopping on the bus back to town.

Busses will drop you off at Hall St. which is a short walk or ride back to the start. Or you can catch a connecting bus to another locaiotn. Here is a link to the the drop off/transfer statoin location on Hall St.

Busses are first come first serve and will leave every hour on the hour starting at 12:00 Noon until 6:00 pm.

Finish party details 

If you haven’t heard the news, this year’s finish party will be in Herman Park directly across from the race finish parking at the Suttons Bay Highschool.

Herman Park is a quaint little green space nestled in the woods just outside of Sutton’s Bay. There is a paved pedestrian trail that circles a small lake. There is a small pavilion, a fishing dock, a disc golf course and we thinkg it’s a perfect place for us to have our party to celebrate the great day or riding and racing. 

After the ride, we’ll be hosting some games and fun, the US Air Force will be there with a Corn Hole game set up. There will be a hole in one disc golf challenge hosted by Tilly’s Party Store and you can compete to win one of  two Webber Grills from Maxes Service. We are even thinking about a slow bike race around the lake on the pedestrian trail. Who's in?


Food will be provided by VI Grill in Suttons Bay.
Local Beer from Jolly Pumpkin 
Cider and Wine from 45 North.


I know you’ve heard it before but this will be a Race, a Ride and a PARTY!
