GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. — On Saturday, over 1,600 people are expected to participate in a non-competitive cycling event that benefits the MSU College of Human Medicine’s skin cancer, awareness, prevention and research.

It has drawn cyclists of all ages from 15 states – some as far as California, Washington, Maine, Florida – and even Ontario, Canada. The MSU Gran Fondo was named a “must-ride” event and one of the nation’s top Gran Fondos in 2016 by Gran Fondo Guide.

Police advise motorists to be on the lookout for bicyclists during the event. Here are the PDF maps of the routes:

80-Mile Loop – Grand Rapids to Grand Haven and back

40-Mile Loop – Grand Rapids to Coopersville and back

25-Mile Loop – Grand Rapids to 8th Avenue and back

12-Mile Loop – Grand Rapids loop
