New this year!!!!
Some like to camp, some like to glamp at a hotel, a different campground with your family, or a hotel. Now you have a choice! You are welcome to make alternate lodging to best accommodate your needs. You will need to make plans and pay for your choice of alternate lodging.
Another great feature is you will only need to set up and tear down camp twice. We will be staying in East Jordan and Petosky. Our ride routes will be different each day, but we will always return to the campsite. Nice eh?
5 Day option
2 Day option
You have distance options too! Distance options include daily mileage of approximately 50, 75, and 100 mile routes. Our last ride day is a 50-mile day for everyone! Distances are approximate.

January 2023 is a busy month as we work hard to finalize our details for WOMBAT 2023! Here is what we know so far. Our trip will be a Circle Tour in northern west Michigan. We love the crisp cool mornings, evening campfires, and days of riding through Pure Michigan scenery. Be assured, it will be another fantastic ride in beautiful Michigan.
Rider fees (to cover camping, food, supplies, SAG cost, etc) will be $295 ($325 for late registration) for our 5 day option. Rider fees will be $195 for the 2 day option. We offer a $25 discount when you recruit another person who will be riding WOMBAT for the first time in 2021.
WOMBAT is committed to support several missions in Haiti, therefore all riders are expected to raise a minimum of $200 (5 day option) and $100 (2 days option) as a donation to our ministries. Most riders raise $800-$1,000 in donations! We encourage you to involve your friends and family by giving donations as you ride.
Although individual riders as certainly welcome, many churches, families, and friends form teams to train together, challenge one another, and celebrate a great ride on the final day of WOMBAT. Many teams include 3-4 family members, 8-10 members from a few churches in their local town, and facebook friends that love to ride. There will be great fellowship with riders from other churches too! It is not that hard to do, just ask a friend to join you in this adventure. It’s a wonderful way to see the beauty of our great state!
