Meet Dennis and Patrick

28th year of riding in the Harbor Springs Cycling Classic! Dennis joins us on Friday for a short 40 mile warm up on his own, then hits the road Saturday morning with the rest of the gang on the 60 mile route. The only stop Dennis makes is at Sturgeon Bay to visit with long time volunteer Patrick, so they can argue which teams are performing better this year - Michigan or Michigan State!
