  • Date: Saturday, October 29th

  • Ann Arbor Bus to East Lansing Departure Time: 6:00am in Ann Arbor (location TBD) for those riding the bus to East Lansing
  • Route:  Paper, PDF file, and online versions of maps will be provided. The route is roughly 65 miles, mostly on paved, flat country roads – though some hard packed gravel roads are included on the official route – road bikes have had no trouble in the past.
  • Food: Lunch at roughly halfway (in Stockbridge) will be included, plus there will be a stop for cider and doughnuts in Dexter – and a game day tailgate! Riders may wish to bring their own on-bike snacks and cash for other stops.
  • Shirts: Comfy commemorative printed RIVALRY RIDE T-Shirts will be INCLUDED as special mementos – design will be the same as last year. 
  • Transportation: Details are being finalized for Lansing to Ann Arbor transport for riders and bikes.
  • Ride Start: The main group will meet at 7am at Michigan Stadium in Ann Arbor leave soon after.  People arranging their own transportation or meeting us along the way to ride only part of the ride are welcome – make sure you provide an email so we can work out and communicate all of those details! We do hope that partial route riders will wait at the halfway point or other location until the first full route riders arrive. Please coordinate with us – thank you!
