Racing for Home in Leelanau Co. Turns Into Solo Ride
This year the normally crowded event is switching to a solo ride.
Riders have from June 1 to June 21 to head to the World Cup style course at 45 North Vineyard in Lake Leelanau.
Race Captain Trent Grzegorczyk says adult riders compete for their best single-lap time on the 3.2 mile loop while kids ride the shorter 1.1 miles.
“There’s all sorts of terrain: there’s rolling hills, sand, a little bit of gravel. There’s technical single track,” Grzegorczyk says. “The big goal is for us to raise enough funds every single year to build one home, and I know that’s a big goal because it costs about $100,000 to build a home.”
There is a suggested donation to participate in the competition, which will then be matched 50% to benefit the Habitat for Humanity Grand Traverse Region.
