2017 Traverse City Trails Festival

We are excited to announce the first edition of the TCTF! Join us at Ranch Rudolf on Saturday, July 22 for a challenging and fun day in the woods. Celebrate the trails of Northern Michigan any way you want. Race it, ride it, but we know you'll enjoy 40 or 25 miles of pristine singletrack in the Pere Marquette Forest. Choose your ride type, your distance, and pack your sense of adventure (and some snacks) in NMMBA's biggest fundraiser of the year. 

When: July 22, 2017
Where: Ranch Rudolf  6841 Brown Bridge Rd, Traverse City, MI 49696
Who: Racers, Riders, Beginners and Pros! 
Why: To raise awareness, funds, and the roof in support of local trails and local trail users! 

Made possible with the support of Short's Brewing Co., City Bike Shop, GT Cycles, and more! 


Race It! 

Put your singletrack skills to the ultimate test this summer! Choose from 25 miles or 40 miles of the best singletrack in the area, using many of the trails used in the X100 in previous years. We'll offer multiple distances, categories, and the best afterparty around thanks to Short's Brewing Company! 

Got a lil' shredder at home that wants to get in on the action? There's also an 8 mile kids' race to make sure we're all encouraging healthy and active lifestyles at an early age. 


ride it!

Want to enjoy the day? Good! The same 25 and 40 mile race options can be ridden as self-guided tours. Ride the same great trails as the racers, without being in such a hurry. These routes aren't easy, so we've also created a 15 mile short cut, just in case you want to get back to the beer. We'll provide basic mechanical support, aid stations, and a sweeper in case you need a hand out in the wild.
