CHELSEA, Mich. (AP) - A new bicycle race is planned next month at Waterloo Recreation Area that promises a chance to get grimy.

The Waterloo Grit and Gravel bike race takes place March 19. The route goes through the Chelsea-area park, which includes forests, rolling terrain and lakes. Epic Races and the Michigan Department of Natural Resources are partnering to host the event.

Participants can sign up for a 100-kilometer course, a 50-kilometer course or a 10-mile non-competitive ride.

Volunteers are sought to assist with work including the race’s aid station, finish line and post-race cleanup. The state says they’ll get a behind-the-scenes look at the new race by helping out. They’ll also get a complimentary Epic Race T-shirt and refreshments.
