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 18th Annual Mind Over Matter Cycle Event on Saturday, August 6th.

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 five ride distances. The 60 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 2022 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. All riders who raise $200 or more by June 21st will receive a Mind Over Matter Jersey on the event day.  All other jerseys will be ordered after the event. So why wait to start fundraising? Register and begin today!

-Free massages by Reflex Manual Therapy
