Shuttles will begin leaving Courtade Elementary at 7am on Race Day and will leave approximately every 15-20 minutes. The last shuttle will leave Timber Ridge Resort at 6pm to either the start in Kalkaska or Courtade Elementary.
Rider Drop Off. The rider drop-off location is at the Kalkaska Road Commission Loop near the Kalkaska Airport. Riders will then bike from the loop to the start line at the Kalkaska Airport. There are no bag trucks at the Road Commission Loop so riders must port their finish line bags to the start line. Rider drop off will be well marked with signs and drivers will be provided with a map directing them to Timber Ridge Resort.
Busing for Rasho Farms. Park at Rasho Farms and then catch a bus to the start line. Each bus will be followed by its very own Penske truck transporting your bike at the same time as you! Busing is subject to traffic delays as well as additional time needed to load and unload the bus and the Penske.
Park at the Start. Improved traffic flow this year has made it easy to arrive and park at the start line. Please note that the traffic in and out of the Airport parking lot is ONE WAY. Return shuttles will be available to get back to the Start from Timer Ridge Resort.
Additional Shuttle Services. Shuttles will run from Rasho Farms to Timber Ridge Resort for Slushies and spectator a like. Returns shuttles are also available on a regular basis from Timber Ridge Resort to Rasho Farms and the Start Line.
Important Parking Reminders: Parking at Timber Ridge Resort is prohibited unless you have a permit. Parking on Hammond Road will result in your vehicle being towed. Subaru owners receive premium parking at the start and the finish, if available at the time of arrival.
