14th Annual Michawana Bike
May 20, 2023
CHECK IN – Check in will be from 9:00am-9:30am on Saturday, May 20 at Harbor Island Boat Launch, Coho Drive, (BOLD) Grand Haven, MI There is a large parking lot with bathrooms there. Biking will begin at 9:30am, if you are a slower biker we encourage you to get a good start right away. If you are a fast biker we encourage you to check in closer to 9:30 so you can speed ride to your heart’s desire.
PLEDGES – A minimum of $50 per biker is required to participate in the trip, but we encourage you to see how many people you can talk to and how much money you can raise to send kids to camp! Donors can give online at michawanacamp.org/donate or by sending a check (memo: Bike) to 5800 Head Lake Road, Hastings, MI 49058. You can collect the donations before or after the race. Fill out a pledge form to keep track and turn it in at registration on the day of the event.
PRIZES – There will be prizes for the biker who raised the most money, as well as prize baskets you can win. The more people who sponsor you, the more tickets you get towards winning a basket!
CAMPING – Grand Haven State Park is very close and has camping available. We are not making a “block” reservation but feel free to let us know if you’re coming and want to meet up. There are many Air B n Bs and hotels in the area as well.
KIDS – Kids are welcome if accompanied by an adult and helmets are strongly encouraged!
SAG WAGON – The ride is a down-and-back so you can ride as little or much as you like. We will have a sag wagon in case you run into trouble or just need a break, so don’t worry about the distance!
TRAIL: We will bike South to Tunnel Park (Holland) for lunch and a program then back to Harbor Island with stops in between at Rosy Mound and Kirk Park for snacks and fun!
Let us know if you have any other questions! #sorebunsforJesus
