Course Info: LOST NATION

This course is located near Pittsford, Michigan, which is approximately 50 miles west northwest of the intersection of I-475 and Central Avenue in Toledo.  The Wheelmen only use this road race venue occasionally, and then only once in any given season.  This is a 12.1 mile course on country roads and it is considered rolling terrain as compared to the pancake flat farmland of northwest Ohio.  Due to the extended drive time from Toledo, the race does not typically start until 7:00pm.  However, members are strongly encouraged to leave early to allow for the longer drive time. Take US 20 (Central Ave) West from I-475 about 33 miles, through Fayette, to the junction with US 127. Take US 127 North about 9 miles where Squawfield Road exits left.  Continue on Squawfield Road about 6 miles to the intersection of Pittsford Road and park there. Click for a map
