Bike Benzie Up North Fondo & Tour

Saturday, June 1, 2019

Created by the  Benzie Sunrise Rotary Club  and hosted by Crystal Mountain for the last 11 years, the  Bike Benzie Up North Fondo and Tour  is an annual charity ride for the benefit of area youth.

The event offers four picturesque rides through beautiful northwest lower Michigan that challenge riders of all ages and abilities. Benzie County and Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore, where a large portion of the 100-mile loop is located, provide a rare combination of incredible natural scenery and perfect cycling terrain. Also, great food stops along the way feature regional snacks and more. All four rides start and end at Crystal Mountain.
