HARRISON — Mid Michigan Community College hosted its third annual Sweat Shaker mountain bike race on June 30. A record 204 racers competed.
The race was held on MMCC’s Harrison campus’ nearly 15-mile mountain bike trail. This year was the first in which the Sweat Shaker was included in the Michigan Mountain Biking Association Championship Point Series.
Co-sponsored by the MMCC Foundation, Ray’s Bike Shop (Midland), Bicycle HQ (Midland), and Attorney Todd Levitt (Mt. Pleasant), proceeds from the race benefited MMCC Athletics.
Each year, the college hosts two mountain bike races, The Rust Shaker in the spring and the Sweat Shaker in the summer. MMCC also holds a 5K run/walk and an 8-mile run on its trails as part of its annual Fall Festival, which will take place this year on Sept. 16.
MMCC’s bike and walking trails are open to the public. Bike riders of all skill levels can enjoy wooded and hilly trails, long and gentle climbs, as well as steep, rough terrain.
