Your favorite tiki party and bike race of the summer is on!
Get ready for the 18th Annual Tree Farm Relay at Lakeshore Park in Novi, presented by the MCMBA and Team Tree Farm. Rain or shine (usually rain), it’ll be your favorite event of the summer.
This is the same format you have all grown to love… a unique 4-person team relay race! The course features lots of hills, passing zones and fun! This is a perfect race for the beginner looking to see what team / endurance racing is all about and for experienced racers looking to test their skills against rival teams. If you want to try an endurance race, but aren’t ready for the distance, this is the perfect event for you to see what the team racing concept is all about.
