Upcoming Events


The Copper Harbor Trails system hosts several exciting events throughout the summer months, from races to clinics to fun rides and everything in between.  Ride the Keweenaw, Big Boy Clinic, Women's Weekend Clinic, Run the Keweenaw, and Copper Harbor Trails Fest support the trails with either all or a portion of the proceeds going to Copper Harbor Trails Club efforts to expand, improve, and maintain our world-class trail system. Have fun on the trails while supporting our work!

Other events include group rides, trail work days, and a couple of get-togethers thrown in for good measure.  The best way to keep up is to follow the Copper Harbor Trails Club Facebook or Instagram page. Otherwise read on for the main events!

June 2 - June 4

The premier men's clinic in the Midwest!  Our Big Boy Clinic will teach you how to become a better mountain biker, whether you're getting your first turns or have been riding since before mountain bikes were a thing.  Everyone has bad habits to bust and efficiency gains to discover, and our professional coaches are here to help make your riding that much more fun.

July 7 - July 9

Lace up your running shoes and hit the trails!  Compete in several exciting races throughout the weekend, ranging from hill climbs to 10ks to a burly 50k trail run across most of our trails.  If you thought climbing up Brockway was hard on a bike, try doing it twice on foot!

July 28 - July 30

Organized specifically for women by women, our Women's Weekend clinic has helped out hundreds of people boost their confidence and become better mountain bikers. Our all-women crew knows what challenges you face on the trail and can help guide you in overcoming your fears, busting bad habits, and how to have fun no matter what the trail throws at you! Join the crew and learn why we're the top women's clinic in the Midwest. Space is limited and fills up very quickly.

August 19 - August 20

Come grab an ArtBike poster before the Trails Fest rush! We'll be at the Copper Harbor Art in the Park event selling cool merch and limited-edition ArtBike posters to raise money for our trails. There will also be live music, food, and several dozen other vendors selling art from across the region.

September 1 - September 3

Races! Beer! Music! Food! Fun! The Keweenaw Mountain Lodge Copper Harbor Trails Fest returns for Labor Day weekend 2023. This will be our 30th year and we hope you're ready! Grab your mountain bike (or running shoes!) and come north for some of the most challenging races around.  There's something for everyone, from XC racers to Downhill junkies.  It's a family reunion of mountain biking and we hope to see you there!
