Enough with the rakes, loppers and axes already…we’re going ridin’! The new trail at Mid Michigan Community College has about 2 miles left to be cut in, but we were eager to ride it. Wednesday night a great group of riders met and did exactly that. I plotted the 8.1 mile route on my GPS to give you a visual. The combination of the heat and hill climbing earned us a spot at Ruckle’s (in Clare) for post ride beers, burgers and laughs.
A big thanks to Vaughn Murray and Steve Hoffman for their leadership and dedication to this project. I could almost name the many others that volunteered their time as well, but I’m sure that I would miss someone. Thanks to all that helped!
Stay tuned for details on the next build project…a mountain bike skills park at Midland City Forest, that will include dirt jumps, skinnies, drops, teeters and a pump track. Approvals have been granted and we are finalizing the design. Until then…RIDE!
