The Michigan Mountain Mayhem (MMM) is a series of cycling events held in Northern Michigan.
The Spring Classic is the original MMM and we made it the toughest ride of the series. It is always held on the second 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.
The August routes of the Beat the Heat are still hard but nothing compares to the hills of this ride matched up with the early season timing. 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 Beat the Heat Tour is a road bike event held on the first Saturday in August and is limited to 1000 riders. This ride is a merge between the MMM and Ride the Charx rides.
The Beat the Heat Tour will have something for everyone, whether you are a beginner looking for a casual easy safe ride with friends and family or a seasoned racer looking for the ultimate challenge. The two flat routes use a mix of bike paths and low traffic roads and follow the shorelines of Lake Charlevoix and Lake Michigan. The four hill challenge routes bounce you between the ridges and valleys that were formed by glaciers. Most of these hills climb between 100 – 500 feet and are very steep.
Six Routes to Choose from:
Two flat routes: a 22 mile and a 40 mile, both of these loops are very flat and include many miles of scenic bike paths without cars. Both are perfect rides for the family to do together.
There are also four all new hill challenge routes, which will test your endurance and sanity: a 50K teaser, a 100K metric century, a 160K (100 mile century), and for those who dare… a 200K double metric!
