A Fundraising Event for Love Creek and Bike Michiana

This fun event is a Fund Raiser for the Bike Michiana Coalition and Love Creek County Park. Our Fantastic Bike Event is organized by Bikers for Bikers. It is a celebration of getting outdoors and Love Creek is a wonderful venue for the launching of Paved and Gravel rides (beginner & advanced).  The casual nature of the event which includes fire pits and nature hikes makes it really fun. Evil Czech Brewery brews a true OCTOBERFEST BEER for the celebration. Additionally, they roast a pig and have other delicious food. Hosting a lot of kid oriented events, we have Mountain Bike lessons, nature hikes, a Scavenger Hunt and several other fun activities to teach kids HOW MUCH FUN IT IS TO BE OUTSIDE. 

Love Biketober Fest Mission Statement:

The annual Love Biketober Fest is a combined initiative of the Bike Michiana Coalition and Love Creek County Park to create a family-friendly experience that highlights both the biking and natural wonders of Southwest Michigan.
