Riding on gravel is taking the world by storm, especially in Michigan.
Southwestern Michigan boasts the worldís largest gravel race every spring.
Road cyclists, mountain bikers, fat bikers, cyclocross cyclists, recreational riders
and even foot scooters love getting out on a gravel road to enjoy all that nature offers without
the busyness of a paved road.
Join us on Saturday, October 5, at 10 AM for the Hart Hills Gravel Race in Hart, MI, just an
hour north of Grand Rapids, MI. Distances offered are 50 miles, 25 miles, 10 miles or 5 miles.
The start and finish will be at Hart Pizza in downtown Hart. Riders will head out east into the
sunrise, and then south and eventually cross through downtown Shelby. The 25 mile route heads
back to Hart through Mears. The 50 mile route brings you within a short distance of Lake Michigan and
then brings you back north east to downtown Hart where hot pizza and cool brews await all finishers.
Registration costs range from $10-$50. Cash prizes are available to the top 3 male and female finishers
in the 50 mile race. Age group winners in the 50 mile and 25 mile will be recognized with a unique medal
and ribbon. The race is chip timed by Epic Race Timing.
A portion of the proceeds from the event will go back to the Crystal Valley Care Fund, supporting families in
need in Oceana County. Visit www.HartHills.com for maps and to register before September 19, the shirt deadline
and when prices increase by $5. Like/follow our Facebook page for the latest news, www.facebook.com/HartHillsBikeRace
