It’s back! The Trifecta Tour is ON for Saturday, September 8.

It’s one of the coolest rides around is on the calendar and ready for you and your pals to shred. The Trifecta Tour has become an annual landmark of that murky season of summer-turning-to-fall. Since you’re a bit too old to get pumped up about back to school, this is your September fun!

The Trifecta Tour isn’t a race, it’s a rolling party. Choose from three different distances for your adventure. There’s a 47, 37, and 20-mile option that suits your agenda for the day, all of which start and end from Townsend Park. At each trail, you’ll find an aid station complete with mechanical support and snacks to keep you happily rolling as you hit some of Grand Rapids’ favorite trails.

Trifecta Tour Ride Options

The Trifecta will take riders from Townsend Park to the Cannonsburg Ski Hill, Merrill Trail, Luton, and Cannon Township Trail, and the back to the Park for some food and cold beer courtesy of our generous supporters, Founder’s Brewing. The Double Dirt nips off Merrill Trail for a distance of 37, while the singletrack just hits Cannonsburg to make sure you’re back in time to crack the first beers of the day.

The Trifecta Tour is a laid-back ride that lets everyone get exactly what they want out of the day. Go faster for a hard workout, go slow to enjoy the ride with friends, or even get the kids out there what might be their first long trail-hopping ride ever! The routes do use open roads and bike paths, so we do ask that everyone obey traffic laws and take those intersections carefully; our biggest goal aside from having fun is staying safe!
