Registration for the October 9 Ludington Edition is open!

Email us for code.

Team captains will register themselves and pay for the team. Provide your teammates’ email addresses during registration and BikeReg will email them to request their contact information, shirt size, waiver, etc. The team is not official until all of this is complete. You must get their portion of the team fee from them.


We highly recommend establishing a BikeReg account for future races. If you need to make a change and don’t have the account information, you can change registration information here.

Race Cancellation
This year we will offer 100% deferment credit to any Michigan Adventure Race, Coast to Coast Gravel Grinder, or Lord of the Springs bike race in 2021 or 2022 if the race is canceled due to COVID. If the race is cancelled due to severe weather (e.g., blizzard), a partial credit will be issued with the amount based on financial impact of upfront, nonrefundable expenses the race incurs.

Team Edits
If you created an account. Find the link in your email confirmation or sign in to your registration (if you registered last year under our old Snap system, contact us). Click on Edit/Transfer link to the right of My Upcoming Events. Make the edits.

If you did not created an account. Go to the registration page and click “Contact Event” under the event name. Click on the Trying to Edit or Transfer Your Entry green box. On the next page, enter the email address that was used to register. An email will be sent to that address with a link to the page where edits and transfers can be made.

Add/Transfer in a Teammate
You can add a person to your team (or replace a teammate) by selecting the Join an Existing Team below the other registration options. Once complete, you must email us and we’ll merge the new person into the existing team, change your division if applicable and provide a partial refund if it’s a transfer.

You must email us (rather than use the BikeReg transfer process) if you want to make a change after registration closes (after Wednesday or Thursday of race week).
