The Sleepy Bear Twilight Ride is fun for all ages! We encourage Families and Groups of Friends to come and join in the fun! Riders can choose The Bear (challenging) or The Cub (easier) routes. Come and join the fun while helping us raise funds for maintaining the Sleeping Bear Heritage Trail.
Pre-registration is CLOSED. Please register on-site at the Dune Climb.
If you drive to the Dune Climb, a Park Pass will be required.
Ride as soon as you are registered. Ride out on the trail and come back to the Dune Climb to finish up before dark. There will be free food at the Dune Climb provided by Cherry Republic! Each rider will get a fun ride token and some awards out on the trail.
Don’t have a bike but want to ride the Twilight Ride? No Problem! The Cyclery in Glen Arbor is working with the Friends of Sleeping Bear Dunes to make bikes available to rent for a suggested donation of $10 for kids or $20 for adults. To pre-register for bike rentals, send us an e-mail so we can make sure we have enough bikes at the Dune Climb.
100% of donations for the Twilight Ride will pay for trail operations and maintenance, performed by the Friends of Sleeping Bear Dunes. We keep the trail clean and safe for riding and walking in the Spring, Summer, and Fall – and groom it for cross-country skiing in winter! All the labor for trail maintenance is VOLUNTEER, but materials, equipment and fuel cost $$. All of our funds come from donations by people like you who love to use the trail! Your donations include a one-year membership to the Friends of Sleeping Bear Dunes.
