Enhanced Gravel.

Taking place on the gravel, singletrack and barely-maintained logging roads of the Huron Mountains in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula, the HAMR (Huron Adventure Mountain Bike Race) is an experience unlike the rest. From the basecamp out in the woods to the randomly-selected start time, HAMR will be, shall we say, memorable. It’s going to be a checkpoint-chasing adventure.


50-75+ miles

2-person TEAM format. Randomly selected start time between 3:00-7:00am. You get 12-hours to collect as many or as few checkpoints as possible.

So here’s the deal. Roaming around in the wilds of The U.P. has the potential for an epic day of fun. But stuff can go wrong. Many spots out there do not have cell coverage and some  places are miles from the nearest blacktop. Be prepared, we’re not coming to get you. Well, maybe on Monday. If we’ve got nothing better to do.
