Local bicyclists love the rolling hills, steep climbs, and twisting roads of Mecosta County, territory often overlooked and unknown by others. Only an hour's drive from Grand Rapids, Michigan's second-largest city, the Big Rapids Cruise offers quiet roads, interesting stops, and a taste of Amish farm country. Starting in the college town of Big Rapids, the route heads north to the village of Paris, complete with a replica of the Eiffel Tower, scaled down of course, before looping south to the village of Stanwood. There you might pass an Amish carriage bound for supplies at the local feed store or market. Wildflowers line the route in spring and summer, and brightly colored leaves in autumn. Terrain: Rolling hills, steep climbs, some fast descents and several flat sections.
