Michigan Human Powered Vehicle Rally

2022 Michigan HPV Rally - Saturday and Sunday, May 21-22, 2022

The 37th annual Michigan Human Powered Vehicle Rally will be May 21-22, 2022, at the Waterford Hills sports car racing track in Clarkston, 4770 Waterford Rd, Village of Clarkston, MI 48346 (map at https://goo.gl/maps/ryWN4kJMZkQoeTos6), the location since 1986. 

The oldest such event in North America is open to riders of all human powered vehicles – recumbents, streamliners, regular bicycles, tandems  and handcycles. There are classes for streamlined, unstreamlined cycles, tandems, women,  youth and tricycles. The rally is conducted using Human Powered Race America rules (go to www.recumbents.com, then under “recumbent racing,” click on “Human Powered Race America,” then on “racing rules.”) Note: HPRA rules require all vehicles to have a mirror, or mirrors, enabling rear vision to both sides. 

The track (track map at http://www.waterfordhills.com/data/downloads/facilitymap.pdf), on the grounds of the Oakland County Sportsmen’s Club, is 1.4 miles around, with nine turns and one hill. Sunday races use a shorter course without the hill. Information about the schedule of events, entry fees, places to stay, etc, will be posted probably by March, but expect the schedule of events to be similar to past years.  If you have any thoughts, suggestions or questions, please email the organizers at mikethebike2325@comcast.net (Eliasohn) or mowett@aol.com.
