The MyMichigan Health Foundation and the Ogemaw Hills Snowmobile Club (OHSC) are partnering to host the second annual Sasquatch Gravel Chase on Saturday, August 6, 2022. Proceeds from the event benefit patients at MyMichigan Medical Center West Branch.

“We’re looking forward to welcoming cyclists back again this year, as well as seeing some new participants for this year’s event,” said Nicole Potter, fund development director, MyMichigan Health Foundation. “The OHSC is a great location for this event, offering riders a challenging course with views of northern Michigan along the way.”

The race includes an 18-mile or 40-mile option. On the day of the event, packet pick up will begin at 7:30 a.m. The 40-mile race begins at 9 a.m., and the 18-mile race begins at 9:10 a.m. Gravel, mountain, cyclocross and fat bikes are all welcomed on the course.

“We couldn’t be more excited to welcome back riders from across the state to our club grounds,” said Doug Lubahn, OSHC trustee. “This is a wonderful event, highlighting our beautiful Ogemaw Hills and the West Branch community while raising money to support the Medical Center.”
