Love seeing Fallasburg Park in peak fall colors? Want to help support a fun event in West Michigan? Can you point in one direction? You can help! 

Each year, we make a commitment to the great folks at the Lowell 50 to help find course marshals for the race. Jeff and his team provide free timing for Skirts in the Dirt each year, one of our very fun fundraisers and a unique chance to get more women into mountain biking! To say thanks, we try to rustle up a few WMMBA allies to post up at some important intersections of the Lowell race to help keep riders safe and on course.

Volunteers will point riders the correct way, watch for cars and tractors, and help make sure everyone gets back to Fallasburg Park safely on Saturday, October 27. There’s always hot coffee and a very warm fireplace before the race start at 10 am, and most volunteers will be off the course in 2-3 hours.

Can you lend a hand? Send an email to 1xsportsllc@gmail.com and let them know WMMBA sent you!

For more info about the Lowell 50, head here, and the best of luck to everyone racing what is the last Michigan Gravel Race Series event of 2018. It’s been a blast to see all our Grand Rapids-based riders putting in the race miles all over the state since March!
