Skirts in the Dirt 

Race Date: 2020 Event CANCELLED

Wahlfield Trail 

Due to the Covid-19 uncertainties, the wonderful ladies that run this event chose to postpone it for the 2020 summer for everyones safety. Word on the street is though that Julie and Jill have some type of physically distanced activity in mind in lieu of the actually race. Stay tuned!

Skirts in the Dirt is open to ALL women, meaning: cis, trans, non-binary, femme. It’s important to work with our WTFNB+ community here in West Michigan, and we’re constantly checking our language and trying our best to cultivate a safe and friendly space. We want to ride with all of the strong, fun, creative riders in our community (or anyone who wants to road trip here!) If you are a guy who wants to participate – we have plenty of volunteer opportunities, we’ll have an obstacle course for everyone to play on, and we always welcome spectators!

Yankee Springs Time Trial

RESCHEDULED – Saturday, September 26, 2020

Yankee Springs Recreation Area – Deep Lake Unit

As one of the largest and longest running time trial races in the Midwest, the event regularly draws over 750 participants who are looking to challenge themselves on some of the most advanced and well maintained single track in the state. The course is challenging and fun for all, from beginners to elite.  The 11+ miles of trail is 95% single track, but affords enough passing room for courteous racing.  With participants going off every 10 seconds there is plenty of space between riders, so… it’s you against the trail.

The Yankee Springs Time Trial is an all volunteer run, West Michigan Mountain Biking Alliance (WMMBA) benefit event.  All proceeds go directly towards maintaining and building the many wonderful trails right here in Western Michigan.
