Also NEW: By popular request ODRAM is adding a SAG stop between the start and lunch and a 2nd stop between lunch and the BBQ dinner along the shore of Lake Huron's Saginaw Bay at the finish.
Proceeds from ODRAM will again benefit the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation's Ride to Cure Program.

Some kind words from a happy past ODRAM rider:
Back in May of 2010 in an exchange of emails with Chris, I wrote: “I might suggest that you consider a "pack vehicle" that would take a rider's small pack with a change of clothes, etc. to Bay City. This vehicle could leave the west start point as say 9am and be in Bay City in plenty of time. Just a thought."
Chris came back with: “Great idea to have a "pack" option……Thx,Chris”. The rider’s change of clothes pack is now standard operating for the ODRAM.
One month after riding 2011 ODRAM, I switched to a totally plant based diet (vegan-no meat or dairy). Remembering those delicious burgers in Bay City from 2011, I asked Chris in the off season if arrangements could be made for those of us who do not eat meat. In short, his reply was, ‘of course’. When I finished 2012 the ODRAM, there were delicious veggie burgers available to be grilled to meet my dietary request.
I just wanted to illustrate why I think that ODRAM organization is outstanding and why I sincerely believe that ODRAM has the potential to become one of the classic cycling events in Michigan.
