😃🚵‍♀️2021 is off to an awesome start with our news that the 8th annual Iron Range Roll is scheduled for Saturday, June 5th 2021! We are looking forward to racing along the historic IOHT, after going virtual last year. 2021 will see more available options for racers than ever before, as we adapt to the ever-changing pandemic guidelines and recommendations. We hope to hold the race as a physical event with a virtual option for those unable to travel or wishing to take extra precautions.For more information check out our website at www.ironrangeroll.com/ #IRR2021 🚴🏻‍♂️🚴🏻‍♀️ ...

Start The Cycle is dedicated to building confidence and self esteem in local at risk youth.

Start The Cycle is dedicated to building confidence and self-esteem in at-risk youth. Our team members and mentors meet weekly in the summer and winter to practice mountain and snow biking skills on the local trail networks in the Marquette area. They learn basic bike maintenance, trail etiquette, and first aid. The participants are supported by volunteers, donors, mentors and role models from the community as they progress throughout the program. Start the Cycle is a non-profit program that is made possible by generous sponsors and donations.
