Come for the Ride, stay for the Rock!
Join us at the 9th annual Milford Challenge, a family friendly celebration of the great singletrack trails surrounding scenic Milford. Bikers pick their own course: Highland, Milford, Island Lake, Kensington, Proud Lake, Hickory Glen – easily rideable from Milford with great paved bike paths and a minimum of road riding. You can tailor this anywhere from a fun trail ride with friends to an all-day 100 mile epic!
Participants will be treated to a live music performance by the Orbitsuns beginning at 1 pm. Please stop by, share your stories and adventures with other riders, and enjoy the food and vibes of downtown Milford!
Participation fee is still just $15, and all proceeds benefit the MCMBA and support the local trails that you love.
Advanced registration is available online at Race Services
Day-of registration runs from 7:30 to noon at Main Street Grill, 327 N Main Street. A detailed map and suggested routes will be provided at registration, along with a wrist band and tickets for two free beverages!
Trail’s Edge Bike Shop (525 N Main Street) will be hosting a kid’s Bike Rodeo at their store from 11 am to 1 pm, and members of their team will be available to lead group rides through nearby trails from 10 am to 1 pm. Stop by and enjoy the merriment!
This is a self supported and self directed ride. Bring water, food, money, cell phones, friends – whatever you need for a day on the trails. Camping facilities and cabins are available at Proud Lake Recreation Area, a three mile ride from downtown.
If you are not familiar with these trails, maps may be downloaded from mcmba.org
