4th ANNUAL BLACK FRIDAY RIDE, 11/23, 10 AM at Rolling Hills & Hewens Creek

Come out to the Fourth Annual Black Friday MTB Ride at Rolling Hills and Hewens Creek Parks in Ypsilanti Township on Friday 11/23 at 10 AM. This will be a no-drop group ride and is great for novice MTBer's to get exposure to single track riding and be a great way to burn off that Thanksgiving feast and tryptophan overdose. The ride will be about 13 miles covering about 5.5 miles at Hewens Creek and 5 miles at Rolling Hills along with a few miles of dirt road connecting the two parks. For those who haven't ridden or rarely ride at RHP, you will get a chance to see new 1.25-mile Munger loop on the west side of RHP which includes some fun pump-track like riding on the Munger Mounds and beautiful open meadows.
Meet at the Rolling Hills Headquarters building (the lodge) at 9:45 AM and then we will head out by 10-10:15 AM. After the ride, we will have some pizza and refreshments at the lodge at 11:30 AM. Please register in advance at Event Brite to attend so I can get a good estimate of riders for the pizza and beverages. Rain date will be Saturday 11/24 at 10 AM. Look for changes on the Rolling Hills or Hewens Creek forums on the MMBA website.
It will be very busy at RHP as there is also a Disc Golf event on the same day who will use the Lodge immediately after us. Please park in the MTB trail head parking lot - enter the park, go straight through the traffic circle and park in the first lot on your right next to a big pavillion ~1/4 mile away from the circle. The Lodge will be about 200 yards away on your left.
Unfortunately, there will be a gate charge this year to enter RHP. It is a Washtenaw County Park so if you already have WCP sticker you are good to go. Otherwise, park entry will cost $5 for everyone as I negotiated a discount for non-Washtenaw residents.
Last but definitiely not least, we have to thank DeWight and crew at Wheels in Motion for supporting the MTB community by sponsoring this event and paying for the food and refreshments.
