This is the 43rd MTR and the 6th time the MUTS will be hosting this spectacular event. We hope you will join us for fantastic rides, fellowship and fun with fellow tandem enthusiasts, however if single cycling is your thing consider yourself invited also.
The jersey theme will be featuring the city of Grand Rapids' iconic symbol locally called "The Calder". The public sculpture officially named La Grande Vitesse was created by American artist Alexander Calder. The title is French for "the great swiftness." It is found on a large concrete plaza surrounding the City Hall and Kent County Building. It was the first public artwork funded by the National Endowment for the Arts when it was installed in 1969. The sculpture is a popular gathering place for residents and visitors alike and is the centerpiece of the city's Festival of the Arts held the first weekend of June.
Our host city, Grand Rapids, is known for its vibrant downtown with dining, shopping, museums, and sightseeing opportunities all within a 10-minute walk of our hotel.
