41st Annual Copper Country Color Tour

September 27th | 8:00am



50/100/200km Routes

With expertly marked courses through the beautiful roads of the Keweenaw, you can enjoy fall colors in a new perspective. This year features an improved 50km route.

Lots of Food

With up to five separate food stops, you will be properly nourished throughout your ride.

Sag Wagons

While flat tires only seem to occur during races and events, we have you covered with tubes and basic tools on our sag wagons. We won’t let a simple mechanical destroy a day of fun riding.

Pasties in the Harbor

For those that brave the 200km route, there are Roy’s Pasties waiting for you in Copper Harbor.

Swag Bag & T-Shirt

Everybody gets a swag bag, t-shirt and raffle ticket.

After Party

Join us for the After Party at the Continental Fire Co for food, fun & a raffle!

The Copper Country Color Tour is an annual scenic ride hosted by Michigan Tech Cycling/C4. Enjoy riding along the pristine shores of Lake Superior and through colorful forests.

The event is September 27th. Registration and packet pick-up will be from 6:00-8:00pm Friday the 26th and 6:30-7:50am Saturday the 27th. Both of these registration opportunities will take place inside the front entrance of the MUB building on campus.

The roll out through downtown Houghton is at 8am.

The fun doesn’t stop when the riding does! Stick around for the After Party at Continental Fire Co from 7-9 PM. There will be food, music, and a raffle. Oh yeah, and beer.

Make sure to register early in order to be guaranteed your swag bag and t shirt! Early registration ends on Sept. 24. Online registration will still remain open until Sept. 25, but we can’t guarantee you’ll get your goodies!
