The Michigan Mountain Mayhem (MMM) is a series of cycling events held in Northern Michigan. Although they do offer shorter routes so most everyone can enjoy them, either of the two willl likely be the hardest ride you ever attempt.
The Spring Classic is always held on the third Saturday of June and is limited to 1,500 riders. It is a road bike event and is a timed challenge ride on the toughest terrain Michigan has to offer and will test you both mentally and physically. It is one of the most grueling and challenging rides you will ever participate in.
Four routes to choose from: a 50K teaser, a 100K metric century, a 160K, (100 mile century), and for those who dare… a 200K double metric with almost 10,000 feet of climbing!
The Gravel Grinder will be a gravel road race like nothing you could have imagined. It will always be the first Saturday in October and is limited to 2000 riders.
You can expect a huge purse as well as some of the fastest racers in the Country. Expect lots of fast gravel, some huge climbs, some seasonal roads with sandpits and a couple rocky descents. All this mixed with the unpredictable fall weather makes for an extraordinary race.There will be a 20 mile, a 45 mile and a 60 mile race. The 20 mile race is very flat, but the 45 and 60 mile races will have long steep climbs, which will test your mental sanity.
