Come and experience rural Jackson County countryside by bike.  The six routes will be well marked and SAG supported. Our low traffic routes feature rolling terrain and abundant shade. With routes of 11, 18, 29, 32, 53 and 68 miles, cyclists can choose to ride as much or as little as they like. Again this year, riders will also have the option of selecting a segment of the popular Mike Levine Lakelands trail as part of their route.  For cyclists who wish to ride mainly on the Mike Levine Lakelands trail, a route is included that puts riders on the trail in 4 miles. Riders can continue to Stockbridge and return making this a 29 mile route, or turn around sooner for a shorter ride. A delicious lunch will be provided between 10 a.m. and 3 p.m. by Sandhill Crane Vineyards (lunch for non-riders will be available for purchase).  As usual, a large selection of fine wines as well as 4 varieties of craft beer will be available for purchase from Sandhill Crane Vineyards. New this year, participants will have the opportunity to purchase the Vineyard’s own hard cider or a special wine tasting package featuring a unique selection of their popular wines. Nutritious snacks, fruit and drinks will be available to all riders at registration and rest stops.  All riders will receive a detailed route map and routes will also be clearly marked on the pavement.

To ensure everyone’s safety, we have a 300 rider limit.

Pre-registration will open on on January 1st.   Day of ride registration will be available for this event.
