Patrick’s Heavy Ride With Friends

Patrick’s Heavy Ride With Friends

Jul 30 @ 7:30 am


Join us for the fifth annual ride on July 30, 2021

Patrick’s Heavy Ride began in 2018 with Patrick Cotant riding 200 miles over two days to raise more than $3,000 for Norte youth programs. The ride was a huge success, and many riders have joined Patrick in the years since. These riders have accepted the challenge and raised needed funds to ensure that every child has an opportunity to ride with Norte.

In 2022, Patrick’s Heavy Ride will roll out better than ever. Our new format and routes mean the ride will be more inclusive for more riders. There’s still a heavy ride (123 miles, The Whole Enchilada), and also a middle distance (47 miles, The Jan Brady), and a leisure 20 mile (20 miles, The TART 20). Full detail at Patrick’s Heavy Ride.

  • WHEN — Saturday, July 30, staggered starts begin at 7:30 a.m.
  • WHERE — Darrow Park, Traverse City
  • WHO — Any riders who want to take on a heavy ride while helping raise money for Norte programs. 
  • HOW — Register to ride, start training, and meet us at the start of the big day.

At the end of the day, we will gather at Little Fleet to celebrate the riders and the ride and give back to ensure that the next generation of riders continues to have the opportunity.
