Milford Trail Challenge - June 1st

A Family-Friendly or All out Multi-trail Epic ..... 10 miles up 100 miles you choose...

The Milford Trail Challenge is an annual celebration of mountain biking in and around the Village of Milford. Bikers pick their own course and trails: Milford and/or Highland and/or Proud Lake and/or Hickory Glen and/or Island Lake and/or Kensington... all easily reachable from Milford with a minimum of road riding. You can tailor this anywhere from a fun trail ride with friends to an all-day 100 miler epic! Enjoy $2.00 beers and musical entertainment at the Milford House between trails, camping 3 miles away at Proud Lake, and bask in the satisfaction knowing that you're supporting your local trails!

June 1st, 2013

Entry Fee: $15 (Proceeds benefit the the Motor City Mountain Biking Association)

Registration: 8am ~ noon
Le Rendez Vous
289 N. Main Street Milford, MI 48381
(Fantastic baked goods - excellent source of fuel for the ride!)

A detailed map and suggested routes will be provided at registration, along with a wrist band for discounted beverages at the Milford House. Entertainment begins in the early afternoon. Please stop by, share your stories and adventures with other riders. Have fun, and enjoy downtown Milford.

This is a self supported and self directed ride. Bring water, food, money, cell phones - whatever you need for a day on the trails.

Pretty dusty today around 1630. Few face slappers too, but overall it was a nice ride. The new section is starting to pack down pretty well.

Rode both tonight and last night - wonderful conditions. FYI, also heard that Maybury is also in great shape.

I have some bad news... :cry: The gas company is working on the pipeline. :cry: So some of the sections of the Milford trail will be tore up.... in the next week. :( :( So if you like the way it is now... you better ride it this week..
The Trail lay out will be changing... next week :(
The excavating equipment is being staged at the commerce rd section. Keep riding the trail, to make our presence known to the workers, This may help to minimize some of the damage and keep the trail open.
I will try to get all the repairs done as soon as I can.
Maybe I can get them to add some more hills. :wink: :wink:

Thank You

Trail was very greasy this morning. Especially wet where the new section is at. the construction hasn't really affected the trail yet.

All but the new section should be thoroughly dry.
