37 or 19 miles of legendary singletrack and gravel. 

Weave through the epic singletrack trails at Yankee Springs Recreation Area.

Hammer the fast but hilly gravel roads and two-tracks of Barry County.

Conquer both and you will be a Lord of the Springs.

  • Start with a 5 mile lead-out, mostly on gravel.
  • Follow with 5 miles on the challenging Yankee Springs Deep Lake mountain bike trail.
  • Grind out 18 miles of Barry County gravel roads, Audobon Sanctuary scenery, and the infamous Sager & Shaw two-tracks (5 miles for the 19-mile race and no Sager or Shaw)
  • Tackle an additional 4 miles of Deep Lake singletrack (19-mile race heads back via the rugged Norris two-track instead of the singletrack).
  • Finish fast with 5 miles on mostly gravel roads.

Chip timed. Wave starts based on historical performance (similar to IceMan). Trophies and gear prizes. Low-key vibe.

Plus a free kids race (10 minutes, loop within eyesight of parents).

Go to for all the details. 

Lord of the Springs is a part the Michigan Gravel Race Series. See their website to sign up. Just $12.
