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!
