Race the setting sun as you cross the mighty Mitten — from coast to stunning freshwater coast. Traverse 210 miles of fast gravel roads and signature two-tracks, spanning Michigan’s lower peninsula.

Start your day at the sunrise shores of Lake Huron’s Saginaw Bay. Make one all-out push west, 210 miles through Michigan farmlands and grasslands, the majestic Manistee National Forest, all the way to the sandy beaches of Lake Michigan at Ludington. Bring along your trusty support crew to meet you at the three checkpoints along the way or pay for the Shuttle & Support service with all profits going to Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation.

Too many miles? No support crew? Choose our convenient 100 mile loop out of Ludington.  If Michigan is America’s high five, the Coast to Coast Gravel Grinder is how you earn it.
