200-Miler - Au Gres to Ludington
100-Miler - Ludington-Manistee National Forest loop

Race the setting sun as you cross the mighty Mitten — from coast to stunning freshwater coast.

In pursuit of rugged adventure, we discovered a route that stitches together fast gravel roads and signature two-tracks, spanning Michigan’s lower peninsula. With heart pumping challenges and breathtaking views, the course is the only one on Earth that links two freshwater oceans… and it’s waiting for you.

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.

If Michigan is America’s high five, the Coast to Coast Gravel Grinder is how you earn it.

Or, tackle our rugged 100-mile loop that starts and finishes in Ludington and shares the last 55 miles with the Coast to Coast. Mile for mile, it's more challenging than its big brother, but you get done a lot earlier!
