2010 Triple Trail Challenge

No rain! As of 7:17 none expected until after 1:00pm.

Not raining as of 6:36am. We may have a few showers but please come ride and eat the chili after!

It’s that time of the year again. Warm up your legs, wash your chamois (please), and get ready to ride, eat, and drink yourself silly — no, its not your anniversary. It’s the infamous Triple Trail Challenge, 46 Miles of Hell, Michigan! In partnership with the MMBA and the Pinckney State Recreation Area, we bring to you the ultimate mountain biking experience in the region!

The ride starts at the Poto trailhead at Pinckney State Park, where you will meet the treacherous climbs and descents that Poto is known for, followed by the fast, rolling (gradually progressing into a few fun and brutal climbs), and scenic Waterloo, otherwise closed to bikes except for this one time per year. Then hang out at the corner store, follow a few roads to the Lakelands trail, and then find your way back to the Poto for an epic finish at Silver Lake with a party on the beach!

Don’t worry about registering early – registration is same day with no rider limit, so bring all your friends! Start time is 7 a.m. – 10 a.m.; food and drink starts at 1 p.m. and is free for all riders.
