About this Event

***PLEASE NOTE: Online registration was extended to Sunday, August 1 and is now closed. Onsite registration will take place on the day of the event. Onsite registration is an additional $20 fee.

Grab your bikes and let’s take off! Join us at Stony Creek Metropark, venture out in your own neighborhood, or choose to ride on your at-home exercise bike. The choice is yours! Rather you choose to rally in person or participate virtually, we are calling on all of you to join us for the 17th Annual Mind Over Matter Cycle Event on Saturday, August 7th. 

Get with your family, your friends, or choose to venture solo to raise money and spread awareness for Alzheimer’s. All proceeds benefit the Alzheimer's Association Michigan Chapter. Choose between four ride distances. The 62.5 and 40 mile rides are for the more avid cycler. We suggest cyclers with more experience choose either of these ride choices. The 18 and 6 mile rides are great for beginners and intermediate cyclers. Don’t forget to challenge yourself and wear a smile. We know you can do it!

All pre-registrants will receive a 2021 Mind Over Matter t-shirt and special gifts to make this experience just as fun as the years past. Participants who pre-register by July 6 will be guaranteed their preferred t-shirt size. This year, we are doing post-event jersey orders. All riders who raise $200 or more by Saturday, August 7 will receive a Mind Over Matter Jersey. So why wait to start fundraising? Register and begin today!
