We are excited to announce River Bends as a new venue for 2019!

Race #4 of the D&D Bicycles 2019 MiSCA Race Series.

A brand new venue to MiSCA, we are thrilled to partner with CRAMBA and Shelby Township to host our 4th race of the season at River Bends Park. The trails contain fast, flowing single track that snakes along a ridge overlooking the Clinton River and its oxbows, and takes a scenic detour along the towpath for the historic Clinton-Kalamazoo canal. The terrain is sure to please riders of all skill levels. The park will have playgrounds, modern restrooms, disc golf, and pavilion space available.

These are student-only races for Elementary, Middle, and High School-ages. No team, no problem – students can participate as individuals.To be eligible to race, students must be registered in Sports Illustrated Play. Additionally, the rider will register for the races they plan to participate in.
