Massive Fallout is a large-scale group ride organized by the volunteers of the Clinton River Area Mountain Bike Association (CRAMBA-IMBA).

The ride features four prominent trails in Macomb and Oakland Counties: Stony Creek, Bald Mountain, Addison Oaks, and Bloomer. These trails are all connected via a series of roads, paths, and rail trails creating a fun, flexible ride. Whether you’re a beginner or expert, the ride can be configured to your experience level and desired length. The total estimated mileage is roughly 50-60 miles including Bloomer.

All trails and routes will be marked clearly. Maps will be handed out during starting hours. Join us for the mass start to be part of one of the largest mountain bike group rides in Southeast Michigan.

This ride is a CRAMBA event and will be insured under the CRAMBA group event policy. An aid station will be available during the ride. T-Shirts will be available for sale the day of the ride at Stony Creek in the morning and at the Addison Oaks aid station. All proceeds from T-Shirt sales will go to CRAMBA.
