Children's Park in Downtown Lake Orion


This year, we'll be starting in beautiful downtown Lake Orion!  Participants will ride to Rochester, receive their raffle ticket, and ride back to the park for a box lunch and prize drawing.  Grand Prize:  $500 gift card to Paint Creek Bicycles. In addition,  instead of stamping stations, cyclists will have a "Poker Ride".  Each cyclist will pick a card from 5 different locations.  The best poker hand at the end of the ride wins $250!

Tickets are $25 until May 23, and $30 thereafter.  Register by May 23 to be guaranteed a DriFit/Wicking T-Shirt!

Frequently Asked Questions about the Paint Creek Crawl


1. What is the Crawl?


The Paint Creek Crawl is a cycling event encompassing the entire trail and business districts from Rochester to Lake Orion. Cyclists will ride from Lake Orion to Rochester and back, and receive a box lunch.  They will also be entered into a drawing for a $500 gift card to Paint Creek Bicycles. A fun "Poker Ride" is planned along the way! Cost is $25 until May 23, $30 thereafter.  Cost includes lunch, and a T-Shirt (must register by May 23 to be guaranteed a T-Shirt)


2. Do I have to wear a helmet?




3.  How long is the ride?

Approximately 20 miles, round trip.  

4. Can I attach a child's carrier to my bike and take them with me?


Yes. However, the event is designed for people 16 and older, due to the length of the ride. We do not recommend children younger than 16 participate.


5. What is the money raised used for?


The money raised will fund trail improvements such as drinking fountains, bike fix-it stations, restrooms, interpretive displays, etc. Last year, the Friends were able to purchase their first amenity for the trail - a bike fix-it station located at the Paint Creek Cider Mill.


6. What is the goal of the event, besides fundraising?


We want to encourage everyone to use the trail as a non-motorized transportation corridor, and showcase how easy it is to visit our local businesses and restaurants. It's also a great way to incorporate exercise in every day activities!


7. Who is in charge of the event?


This is a Paint Creek Trailways Commission event. The event is organized, staffed and managed by the Friends of the Paint Creek Trail volunteers .
