Iceman Cometh officials are urging riders and spectators to park at the Rasho farm for Saturday’s race.
Officials said Lewis Rasho and Holly Hawkins have opened up the hay fields at their family farm for a remote parking site near Timber Ridge. Shuttles will run throughout the day.
“It is anticipated that the Grand Traverse Road Commission will issue a temporary no parking zone for Saturday on the south side of E. Hammond Road between Haaland Road and Rasho Road and on the west side of Haaland Road and Six Mile Road from Roselawn Drive to Dogwood Drive and the north and west side of Whispering Oaks and north side of Dogwood Drive.
“Thus, do not plan on parking anywhere outside of Timber Ridge except at the Rasho Farm,” officials said on the Iceman web site.
The Rasho farm is located just south of Courtade Elementary School.
For riders, buses will depart the Rasho farm for Kalkaska — the Iceman starting point — every half hour from 7-9:30 a.m. A truck will carry bikes and equipment.
For spectators, shuttles will run from the Rasho farm to Timber Ridge between 7 a.m. and 6 p.m. Shuttles will leave approximately every five minutes, except in the morning until 10 a.m. when the interval will be about 10 minutes.
