Spring Trail Cleanings Announced

Spring will be here before you know it, and that means it’s time to clean some single track!  This is a great chance to get out and take care of our trails that we all love to ride.  Hopefully we will get good turn-outs for both cleanings; which cuts down on work and also gives everyone more time to ride!  Dates for these two cleanings are as follows:

Moss Lake Cleanup: May 3rd and 4th

Bass Lake Cleanup: May 10th and 11th

Both cleanups will have camping available and a cookout provided.  Please RSVP on our Facebook page, or contact Nick Zambon at (906)228-7010.  Please help spread the word!

MiniMoose Family Enduro will be held Saturday 6/8/2013.

Sign up starts at 11.00am, with a 1.00pm Key Time start. Fun trail, little bike friendly! Kids loop approx 15 miles, with a “big kid’s” additional loop. Course will be run with a 12 mph average, traditional enduro rules, no computers!
