When? Saturday August 5th, 2017. Day of ride registration is anytime between 8 – 11 a.m.
Where? Sandhill Crane Vineyards located just off I-94 between Grass Lake and Jackson Michigan at 4724 Walz Road.
The tour combines cycling at a favorite Michigan biking destination along with a sumptuous lunch at one of southeastern Michigan’s finest wineries. Featuring low traffic rural paved roads, it includes routes for all levels of cyclists from a casual 8 miles to a challenging 65 miles. For 2017, we have been working closely with Sandhill Crane Vineyards to further improve our ride and offer riders a truly unique experience. All pre-registrations will include a premium locally sourced lunch prepared by the vineyard’s chef which will include a mufaletta sandwich, soup and dessert: ice cream with a fruit crisp. Pre-registrants will have the opportunity to select a vegetarian option for their lunch. Sandhill Crane Vineyards will also offer a special wine tasting package of 5 tastes for only $3 to all participants. The vineyards will be devoting their facilities to our event, and riders will have the option of enjoying their lunch inside their facilities or outdoors on their porch. All riders will be provided with maps for the marked route, snacks at sag stops and roving sag support during the ride. Parking for the ride again this year will be at East Jackson Elementary School at 4340 Walz Road conveniently located just south of the vineyards.
Register early to take advantage of including lunch with your registration, door prizes and special reduced pricing. All registrations received by July 30th will include lunch and have reduced fees of $25 for individuals and $55 for families. To find further details, go to the Cascades Cycling Club website. Online registration is available here.
