CANCELLED: Cycles & Cider 2019 Biking Event

9&10 News to host an inaugural biking event on October 5th, 2019

Cycles & Cider Fall Bike Ride Event Cancelled Due to Low Participation

 

Cadillac, MI–The Cycles & Cider Fall Bike Riding event that was to take cider riders from Cadillac to Reed City and back has been cancelled. This event was planned in hopes that families and riders could get one last ride in before the winter months.

The decision to cancel was taken very seriously. In order to be able to host the caliber of race that was intended for this day required a certain number of participants, that unfortunately was not able to be achieved.

All riders that have already purchased their tickets will receive a full refund.

“We are so fortunate to have such amazing sponsors that were willing and wanting to make Cycles & Ciders a festive fall event for our community. We just weren’t able to get the registered riders that we needed fully to make this event take off,” says Renee Mahon, 9&10 News Promotions & Marketing Director. “We will be back to the drawing board with some other fresh and fun promotions that will impact our community positively, that’s always our goal!”

Thank you to all of the businesses and sponsors that were willing to take a chance on this event:

Norte Youth Cycling

4Front Credit Union

Reed City Chamber of Commerce

Brickwheels

Blake’s Hard Cider Co.

‘Cider Riders’ will be looking to hit the scenic and groomed White Pine Trail (Rails-to-Trails) for this featured 62 mile ride. The event ride starts at 9:00am for all riders. Riders will ride the trail to the beautiful, Reed City Chamber of Commerce Building to grab some more donuts and cider before making their way back.
