Spectacular fall colors…a family bike ride… a fun run/walk… fall activities…the autumn scenery along the Kalamazoo River Valley Trail is a must-see, and the Fall Color Cruise provides the perfect opportunity to experience all of its beauty! We have expanded the event this year to include a fun run/walk to go along with the bike ride, making it unlike any other event in the region!

4.5 or 8.5 Mile Bike Ride: Bring your bike and cruise along the Kalamazoo River Valley Trail, enjoying the spectacular fall colors and family-friendly activities along the way. There will be two out-and-back routes, both heading north on the Kalamazoo River Valley Trail from Markin Glen Park toward D Ave.

5k Fun Run/Walk: Lace up your running shoes and wind through a wooded setting blanketed in fall foliage for an untimed, fun run/walk along the Kalamazoo River Valley Trail.

Trouble deciding which event to do? Create your own Duathlon! Participate in both if you’d like. Two great events, one low price!

Run, walk, bike, children activities, and family fun!
