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.
The Beat the Heat Tour will take place in beautiful downtown Boyne City. The start for all routes will be at the Boyne City High School (BCHS). Camping will be allowed (outside only) for Friday and Saturday nights and there are shower facilities available for all riders. The finish and after ride party will be held at Veterans Park, which is walking distance from downtown shops and restaurants, and a site offering scenic vistas including a "million dollar sunset". The parks also offer a playground for children and bathrooms.◂ Return to Events Calendar
