The 2019 100,000 Metre T-Shirt Ride begins and ends at Potterville High School PHS).  This year’s riders may choose between 25K (⁓ 20 miles), 50K (⁓ 34 miles), 100K (⁓ 61 miles).  To celebrate 40 years, for the truly adventuresome riders, there will be a true century route (⁓ 100 miles). All routes start together and split off at different mileage points to form each particular loop.  Except for the century route, all routes are within western Eaton county.  The century loop will traverse Eaton, Barry and Ionia Counties.  All riders will pass through Charlotte. The 100K riders will pass through Vermontville.  The Century riders will also pass through Vermontville, as well as Lake Odessa and Portland.   Complete SAG service will be provided for the metric loops.  SAG service will be available for the Century riders beyond the 100K loop, but riders must call the number on the map to get help.

All routes will pass through at least one rest stop with volunteers serving assorted fruits, snacks and beverages.  Those riders doing the century ride might want take some extra cash, as there will be no rest stop between the Vermontville and Dow Road rest stops (⁓ 30 miles) – food is available in Portland.  The PHS Food Service will be providing lunch for all riders who have paid as a regular registrant.

A new collectable 2019 T-Shirt Ride t-shirt is available for purchase with your pre-registration.
