Roll through beautiful Mid-Michigan on this non-competitive bike tour. Choose from 25-, 50-, 75-, or 100-kilometer routes. All participants receive a Farm Daze Tour t-shirt and post tour meal. Aid stations will be placed through out the routes with snacks and refreshments. Funds raised will support Mason Barker.
MSU Farm Daze Tour is hosted by MSU Triathlon Club. Funds raised will support Mason Barker, a member of MSU Triathlon and 2008 graduate of Michigan State. On August 18th, 2008, Mason was cycling around Michigan State, training for his Ironman Triathlon, when he was struck by a car, receiving severe head trauma, and was put into a coma for 5 months. Since coming out of his coma, Mason has made great improvements, and continues to improve every day. He is determined to compete in races again, and says things like "Can we go faster?" and "I want to fly!" when he walks during physical therapy. With everyone's love and support, we hope to help Mason through out his recovery and get him back so he can race once more.
