The picturesque course begins on Lake St. Clair in Saint Clair Shores. The bike race is flat, fast and takes competitors down Lake Shore Drive. The route includes the beauty of the tree lined street that opens up to riding next to Lake St. Clair. This is the same view that was seen at the end of Clint Eastwood's movie, "Gran Torino" with the Grosse Pointe Yacht Club tower off in the distance. The 5K portion of the race goes through Walby Park and adjacent streets and back. Rules of the road will be followed through Grosse Pointe Shores and Grosse Pointe Farms for the bike race.
