PEDAL & WHINE BIKE TOUR AUGUST 5, 2023
Cascades Cycling Club is proud to present a bicycle tour that showcases south-central Michigan’s rural roads, summer scenery, its wine country, and delicious, locally sourced food.
Join us for this very popular, fully supported ride that has grown significantly since our first ride in 2013. Enjoy bicycling along the scenic, lightly traveled roads of eastern Jackson County and the Waterloo Recreation area. With routes of 11, 18, 29, 32, 53 and 68 miles, cyclists can choose to ride as much or as little as they like. This year's routes will also give riders the option of including sections of the Mike Levine Lakeland trail in their route. All routes are fully supported by roving “SAG” vehicles and “SAG” bicyclists so participants can ride worry-free.
To ensure everyone’s safety, and to ensure the best possible experience for our guests, we will be limiting our event to 300 riders this year.
