Mid Michigan Community College will host its fifth annual Rust Shaker mountain bike race on April 26th at 10:30am. The race will be held on MMCC’s Harrison campus’ 16 mile mountain bike trail.
The event is co-sponsored by the MMCC Foundation, Ray’s Bike Shop (Midland), Terry’s Cycle (Alma), Bicycle HQ (Midland) and Todd L. Levitt, Attorney at Law (Mt. Pleasant). Proceeds will go toward MMCC student scholarships and the trail maintenance fund.
Racers will experience wooded and hilly trails, long and gentle climbs, as well as steep, rough terrain. The course winds through a nice combination of fast flowing trails, tighter technical trails, and a few short sections of hilly two-tracks, making it challenging and fun for all skill levels.
The Rust Shaker is open to all riders and has multiple classes and divisions. Registration is only $30 early and $40 on event day, with cash payouts and awards for the winners. Registrations are also taken online.
