About the Sweat Shaker Mountain Bike Race

Presented by the Northern Chapter of the Michigan Mountain Biking Association and Mid Michigan Community College.

Don't miss the MMCC Sweat Shaker Mountain Bike Race! The Sweat Shaker is part of the MMBA Championship Point Series, but does feature divisions for every ability level! Come out and enjoy one of Michigan's best mountain bike trails on the Harrison Campus of Mid Michigan Community College. It's set in a beautiful forest with massive trees and rolling hills. This trail sports some long, gentle climbs (a few not so gentle) and holds up well to rain. A nice combination of mostly fast flowing trails some tighter technical areas and a couple short sections of hilly two tracks. This course will be challenging and fun for all racers.

Proceeds benefit MMCC Athletic Programs.
