Introducing the 2017 Traverse City Trails Festival!

Get ready for a beautiful day on the trails! On July 22, we're inviting all the mountain bike enthusiasts to Ranch Rudolf for a day of singletrack, beer, and fun. Short's Brewing Company is helping us bring you the first annual Traverse City Trails Festival, and you won't want to miss it. 

Race it, or tour it! For those looking to test the legs, they'll be able to choose from 40 or 25 mile race distances that use the very best singletrack in the Pere Marquette Forest. If you just want to enjoy the day, you can ride those two distances for some self-supported touring with friends. If 25 miles sounds like a bit much (or you just want to get back to the beer) there's even a 15 mile shortcut option. 

This event is all about celebrating our community and our trails. It truly is a day for cyclists, by cyclists, with all of the event's sponsors integral parts of the sport in the region. Short's Brewing has always done so much to support healthy, active outdoor lifestyles in Northern Michigan, and as you well know, they sure know how to put on a party once the race is done! 

Stay tuned to the site over the coming weeks as registration opens and we have more news about the course, the race, the prizes, and the fun heading into July 22. Until then, happy trails!
