About the 11th Annual Melting Mann…..

Melting Mann is a Gravel Race and Gravel Grinder for Mountain Bike, Fat Bike and/or Cycle Cross Bikes of all skill levels. First time racers and experts welcome! You’ll race throughout  Newberg, Penn, and Marcellus Townships in Cass County Michigan. The Melting Mann event is named after one of the most challenging sections of the route, MANN Road. MANN Road has been known to turn bikers into hikers! Also accessed via MANN Road, but buried deep in the woods of Michigan’s State land, is Mount Misery, one the highest natural geographical points in Southwest Michigan.

You may choose from a 24 mile, 35 mile, or  60 mile route. Come discover what many serious and successful bikers use as their training terrain!
