While no one really does this race for the stuff, we are excited to offer snazzy trophies, top prizes, finisher awards, swag, and raffle prizes.
This year we have added new categories for Clydesdale, Athena, women’s fatbike and women’s singlespeed so men and women will all have the same categories regardless of the number of racers who sign up. All non-age group categories are open (not divided by age) due to the smaller number of riders in each.
If a category has three or more riders, the top three will get a trophy and prize. If only one or two in a category, they will get a trophy.
Categories: age groups, single speed, fatbike, Clydesdale and Athena, tandem, and 210-mile men’s, women’s and mixed relay categories.
Current men’s age groups: Under 30, 30-34, 35-39, 40-44, 45-49, 50-54, 55-59, 60+. Current women’s age groups: Under 40, 40-49, 50-59, 60+.
Additional age group splits may occur as groups grow in size.
Top Finisher Trophies & Prizes
The trophies will be highly coveted, handcrafted from Michigan hardwoods. Prizes will be “pick what you want” with first place finishers getting first pick, etc., and will include sponsor gift cards and gear (multi-tools, lubricant, tire repair tools, clothing, etc.) based as much as possible on what surveyed riders said they like best.
All finishers will receive a tumbler or beer mug (first come, first serve on the choice), a custom top/stem cap, and “210” sticker. See the Race Information page for photos and details.
Ride into the Sunset Award
Everyone completing the 204-mile course by official sunset time (9:33 pm usually) will receive the traditional wood block award or the laser-cut wood “badge” for your shelf, glue on a bike box, etc.
