Does anyone know anything about the new trail by Petoskey? Is it rideable? Directions? Name? Thanks :)
Give mountain biking a boost on the DNR's trail survey. Looks like they're looking for input for a new statewide trail plan.
Tree down (about 12” diameter) on White Meat trail just east of Strombolis Rd, just east of where you can connect to Strombolis Lakes Loop from White Meat.
The King of Leadville!
Enjoyed ripping at VST-R today with NMMBA Jersey! Missed that we were not MSB racing
Glacial Hills in Bellaire, Michigan is as good as advertised. We rode the outer loop and it was 20 miles of pure joy. Thanks for watching and please subscribe 🚴
How can I order the latest jersey?
Hey gang, how does Mackenzie trail compare to the Cadillac pathway?
Hi. I just received the new jersey and it looks great. But I ordered a medium 3/4 sleeve and it is to big for me. Thought I would check and see if anyone has a small they would want to exchange for a medium? Thanks
I’ve recently gotten back in the saddle and even upgraded to full suspension. I’ve been riding the Cadillac Pathway and have thoroughly enjoyed the trail. I’m shocked how little traffic I experience. Often I’m the only one in the parking lot and I’ve never encountered another rider on the trail. I do enjoy riding with others, are there any Cadillac pathway regulars on here who would welcome a new rider?
Just got my NMMBA cyclist style jersey in the mail. Anybody want swap your XL for my XXL? Text me at 517-604-0344
Hey all, got my NMMBA cycling jersey (not mtb style) in the mail today and it’s sweet. Anybody interested in swapping my XXL for you XL? Still has tags and placed back in bag.

Coburn's Challenge at Provement Pond — Northern Michigan Mountain Bike Association

Let's celebrate Dennis's love of bikes and trails. Learn about the Bike Leelanau fundraiser, Coburn's Challenge at Provement Pond, and let's help bring more great trails to Leelanau County!

Trails are vital parts of a community, but they also play a vital role in building and connecting that community. What makes our sport special isn’t just the forests; it’s the people we enjoy it with.&nbs...

So, is it the TSV while we have it going 'backward'? Either way, it's fun!

Great early morning shot, Ashlea!
