The Divide will be manageable by bike riders of any and every skill level. The Divide is 19 miles (elevation change of 1011′), The Divide+ at 31 miles (elevation change of 1236′) and The Divide Pro-Elite version at 51 miles (elevation change of 2292′). All three races will offer the option of Bike, Fat Bike and, Single Speed/Fixed Gear. Age divisions will be determined as well for each race and division.

The Divide will start in downtown Manton and head south and west towards the dirt roads that skirt the Manistee National Forest. The Divide standard event most roads are solid gravel roads with only a little sand and one slightly rougher downhill section dubbed the redneck roughneck. This ride is doable by any rider.

Those ramping up to The Divide+ and for our Pro-Elite race, will enjoy just a little two track in addition to the solid gravel roads.

The Divide Pro-Elite will do a double loop of the most challenging part of the course to add a bit more elevation and to challenge the stronger racers out there.

The Divide Micro is for the younger riders that wants in on the action. It will be mostly paved roads and some grass as it is currently laid out. These riders get a $4.50 discount off of the base rider fee.
