Join us for Bike Benzie’s 11th annual Up North Race, Team Time Trial and Tour. It’s a fun multi-day event organized by the Benzie Sunrise Rotary Club and hosted by Crystal Mountain Resort & Spa in Thompsonville, Michigan.
We have four early season rides for all levels of riders with breath-taking views and excellent local food! Come join us for a great day of biking in northern Michigan!
The primary mission of the Benzie Sunrise Rotary Club is to improve the lives and futures of the youth of Benzie County. We have a strong partnership with the Benzie County Central Schools and the proceeds from this ride fund the many programs and activities that our partnership is built on for the elementary, middle, and high schools. See our website https://benziesunriserotary.org/ for more details about the specific programs that this ride helps to fund.
