Camp Manitou-Lin
September 14, 2019, 10-10:30 a.m.
24 or 37 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 new 5 mile lead-out, mostly on gravel.
Follow with 6 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 and Shaw two-tracks (5 miles easy gravel for the 24-mile race)
Tackle an additional 3 miles of Deep Lake singletrack.
Finish fast with 5 miles on mostly gravel roads.

Plus a 9-mile race/ride on nearby gravel roads, geared to less experienced riders or those not wanting the singletrack. Free 15-minute kids loop on camp property.

A portion of the proceeds will go to the Camp Manitou-Lin scholarship fund and to build and maintain our awesome area bike trails via the West Michigan Mountain Biking Alliance

Lord of the Springs is a part the Michigan Gravel Race Series. See their website for all the details.
