Michigan TechHOUGHTON, Mich. – Michigan Tech athletics is pleased to announce that the fourth annual Michigan Tech Mountain Bike Rondevous Race will take place on August 24. The Rondevous is a one (12 miles) or two (24 miles) lap mountain bike race around the Michigan Tech trail system.

“Rondevous” is a play of the Dutch word for lap – “ronde” and the word “rendezvous” – a traditional celebration of the French fur trappers. The “Ronde” is also a monumental European bike race in the Flanders region, notable for requiring very strong riding to win. The Rondevous race is a celebration of challenging mountain bike riding.

All proceeds benefit the Michigan Tech men’s and women’s cross country and Nordic ski teams.
