The Bell’s Beer Iceman Cometh Challenge is a point to point mountain bike race held on Saturday of November the 2nd. The race starts at the Kalkaska Airport in Kalkaska, Michigan and finishes thirty miles later at Timber Ridge RV & Recreation Resort on the eastern edge of Traverse City, Michigan. The course consists primarily of dirt roads, two-tracks (the majority of the course), abandoned railroad beds and the world famous Vasa Nordic ski trail. It crosses only one paved road (Williamsburg Rd at mile 17) as it winds through the breathtaking terrain of the Pere Marquette State Forest in Northern Lower Michigan.
The Bell’s Iceman events attract competitive cyclists from all of over the world! Ages range from 1.5 years to 80 years of age. Their ability levels vary from first-time racers to Olympians.
BOOK YOUR SHIPMENT
We've pre-populated suggested ship-to locations (simply click the map pin next to the "where are you shipping to" field) and suggested shipping dates.
You do not have to ship your bike to our suggested location on our suggested dates; you may ship instead to your hotel, a friend's house, a partner carrier holding location or another local bike shop.

Please note that if you ship your bike to yourself in care of any partner carrier location, you will have to present an ID when picking it up there.
