  1. I’ve been to one of these before I think it might have been the Brighton one. They were intense though, definitely not for beginners!

  2. Wow, looks so beautiful, I would love to be riding through all that gorgeous countryside. Think I better become a more competent cyclist first though!

  3. Looks nice. I’ve never actually rode on a mountain bike trail in MI! (First step, buy a bike … lol)

  4. My hubby will love this post! I have relatives and friends in Michigan that I often visit but I had no idea of the mountain biking trails they have! Amazing! Thanks for sharing!

    I didn’t know about all of these. We lived on the east coast of Lake Michigan and there were lots of parks with trails around.
