Welcome in fall with the inaugural Clarabella Groad! Hosted by Ray's Bike Shop, Revolution Racing, and Heart of the Lakes, this gravel bike adventure will take you through Clare and Isabella Counties. Farmland and forest, rolling terrain, and sparkling lakes provide the backdrop for a true Michigan cycling experience.
