GFNY expands further into the U.S. with GFNY Ann Arbor
Scheduled for June 2022, GFNY expands its US race calendar with GFNY Ann Arbor in the Midwest
GFNY Ann Arbor is the latest addition to the GFNY Endurance Sports Series, making it the third GFNY cycling race in the United States. Scheduled for June 12, 2022, riders will get to ride a flat and fast 100-mile course through beautiful midsummer countryside.
Located in the South of Michigan and surrounded by the Great Lakes, the wonderful host town of Ann Arbor will be the expo location as well as start and finish for the race. Ann Arbor is a university city with an international food scene and lots of surrounding nature.
The scenic race course starts at Ann Arbor’s local ice rink and explores the country roads of Michigan where riders will get to see creeks, rivers and lakes. The long course is 100 miles and consists of a 40 mile double-loop along Sharonville State Wildlife Management Area and through villages like Manchester and Bridgewater.
“We’re excited to add a new race in the home country of GFNY,” says GFNY President Lidia Fluhme. “We’ve always had a strong contingent of Midwesterners at our World Championship in NYC so it was only logical to bring a GFNY to them. It’s for them but of course also our national and international riders who enjoy traveling to and exploring new areas by way of racing.”
