Thanks to everyone who came out to enjoy the perfect weather and great trails at the Milford Challenge yesterday! Hope that everyone had the opportunity to discover (or rediscover) how fortunate we are to have so many trails just a bike ride away.

A huge thanks to Bill Hermann for organizing this event each year, to Mike Flack for the T-Shirts, to Dave Cox for the maps and graphics, to the registration volunteers, and last but not least our Trail Coordinators for all the hours they invested polishing the trails for this weekend.

See you next year!

Sure glad the weatherman was wrong yesterday! Thanks to everyone who put this together! It was my first time out on Milford, Proud Lake, and Hickory Glen and really enjoyed all the trails. I met Bill in the parking lot and he said some of the hills were pretty steep in Proud Lake on Loops 3 & 4 and he was definitely right. Will be back again to hit those trails.

O fer sure, Proud Lake is a real gem . Even though some trails are both bike&horse..they were not noticable bumpy. And yes Loop 3 was the killer ..does make ya want to go back & try that section again & again. Finally found & rode all 4 loops with gettin lost a litte..but real nice day and and thanks for all the work on The Milford Challenge MCMBA !

Did the fun parts of Highland, ;-) and loop E (Milford). I *really* enjoyed Milford. I think that trail is an awesome opportunity for a beginner who wants to work on technical riding. Nothing is really that difficult there, but it was quite fun and packed full of enjoyable little surprises that, I think, keeps even the advanced rider happy.
