Top Ten Reasons to Ride the Highlander

A message from the Managing Director of Awesomeness himself, we present to you the top ten reasons you should be racing the Highlander (in no particular order).

1. Like climbing? We have nearly 2400 feet of climbing for the long race.

mile of downhill fun.

beer for your post race refreshments.


4. Like singletrack? Once in the woods, our race is primarily singletrack with
small sections of two-track for passing opportunities. This course has been
selected by mountain bikers, for mountain bikers.

5. Kids race? Well ours is free to ALL kids because we believe in youth cycling.


6. Conflicts? We changed our date so that there are no other cycling conflicts as
compared to previous years. We want to race those other great races too!

7. Have pets? Boyne Highlands offers pet friendly accommodations.

8. Convenience? Bring the whole family to stay and play. Enjoy all of the
tremendous amenities that Boyne Highlands has to offer.
