The Wish-A-Mile Bicycle Tour offers a two-day, 200-mile route and you have the choice to register to ride either of these two options:
Friday, July 26 and Saturday, July 27 (starting in Marshall and ending in Kalamazoo/Portage)
Saturday July 27 and Sunday, July 28 (starting in Holland and ending in Marshall)
Riders will have the option to check-in the night before or in the morning for either dates you chose. Your luggage will be loaded in the morning and transported to the finish-line each day. As a 200-mile rider you have the option to stay at the overnight locations or at an approved hotel along the route (shuttles will run continuously to the approved hotels in the morning and evening). You also have the option to stay overnight the night prior to your ride starting (Marshall or Kalamazoo/Portage). *Staying at a hotel is the financial responsibility of the rider. **Please refer to the Full Tour Itinerary for official start times for check-in, when the route opens and other important times throughout the tour.
