Coast to Coast Gravel

June 26-28

100 or 210 Miles of Gravel Grinding From Lake Huron to Lake Michigan

A new bucket list event for 2020, Vision Quest will be crossing the mighty Mitten of Michigan, from coast to coast. We'll ride through Michigan farmlands and grasslands, the majestic Manistee National Forest, all the way to the sandy beaches of Lake Michigan. You can either make one all-out push west for the 210 mile route or take on the 100 mile loop in Ludington.

With heart pumping challenges and breathtaking views, the Coast to Coast Gravel Grinder is the only one on Earth that links two freshwater oceans.. and we're incredibly excited to take this adventure with you!
