Extending an invite to the 4th Annual HELLKAAT HUNDIE, the HELLKITTEN FIDDIE , April 22nd, 2017 Michigan's 100 mile gravel road race (or 50 miles for the kitten) from 5 Lakes Brewing Co, in Dorr, MI (1638 142 nd Ave, 49323)
Returning this year the ITTY BITTY KITTY, a 25 mile gravel road ride ( not a race!) if you wanna come and roll with the fundraiser but aren't into that whole racing thing!
This race is a fundraiser for JDRF, Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation, the first year we raised about $2500 with 150 racers. In it's second year you all stepped up and we had over 200 racers and raised about $11,000 dollars, last year over 250 riders and over $11,000! Who thinks we can do that and more this year!
We are super excited this year to offer timing for the HELLKAAT HUNDIE and the HELLKITTEN FIDDIE! With timing we are moving to registration on BIKEREG.com. Look for us under HELLKAAT HUNDIE. We are charging a minimal donation and all proceeds will go to JDRF. You too can join other racers questing for the coveted HELLKAAT UNDIES, winners in each category get a pair or if racing the HELLKITTEN you could win your kitten mittens.
There is also over all winners for men and women and a Lanterne Rouge award cause sometimes just finishing is a thing to celebrate.
Categories ( for both races 100 & 50 )
Men's Masters 55+ ( yeah a real master, none of this 40 year old junk)
Women's Masters 55+
Men's SS/ Fixie
Women's SS/ Fixie ( new this year!)
What about the ITTY BITTY KITTY you ask? Love raising money to kick TYPE 1 diabetes where it counts, but maybe you aren't so into this racing thing? Why not roll the ITTY BITTY KITTY (thanks JD STone for the great name!) You can either roll out with the neural start right after the Kitten racers or you can roll the 25 mile route anytime from 8:15 to 3:00. It a great route rolling in the countryside. The route will be marked and you can get tip sheets too. Maybe even ride while a friend races then grab a bite, have fun at the bowling alley or watch the racers roll into the finish!
SOOOOOO DOES THIS SOUND LIKE THE THING YOU'VE BEEN LOOKING FOR?
HOW DO I GET SOME GRIT IN MY GUM YOU ASK?!?
head on over to BIkereg.com and get your self signed up!
