Due to Covid 19 the Assenmacher 100 will have no day of ride registrations, we will cap the number of riders at 250, and routes may be subject to change, to be announced later.
The Assenmacher 100 is a recreational and social fun bicycle ride through the farmland and villages of mid-Michigan. Started in 1980, it has become one of Michigan's premier century rides and has been endorsed by the Governor's Council on Physical Fitness, Health and Sports. It is held each year on the third Sunday in August. With routes of 20, 34, 56, 66, and 100 miles, there are courses for experienced cyclists as well as the casual rider. It has become a popular DALMAC warm up ride. Come on out for a great ride!

GENESEE WANDERERS CYCLING CLUB 2020 Cancellation and Refund Policy Update
As you know, all of us are now facing a unique situation with the Coronavirus pandemic. With the Assenmacher 100 tour several months away, we are currently still planning to hold this event. This may change based on decisions made by the Genesee Wanderers Cycling Club (GWCC) or as a result of local, state or national mandates related to large events. The health and well-being of our riders, staff, volunteers and local communities will be our primary consideration.
One decision we have made is to relax our 2020 Cancellation and Refund Policy to make it easier to change your plans due to the Coronavirus. This is a significant decision for the Genesee Wanderers Cycling Club as a majority of the funding for our club and the work that it does to promote safe cycling in our community comes from tour proceeds. We know that this pandemic is creating hardships for everyone and make this decision seeking to support our tour participants during this difficult time.
Once this difficult year has passed, we will return to our original Cancellation and Refund Policy.
