No doubt you've heard about the next big thing you won't want to miss! On November 17, we're rolling into these short days and dark rides the only way we know how, with a lot of lights! Bring yourself, your bike, and your friends for our Friday Night Lights fundraiser at Brew!
We'll leave Brew at 5:30 for a few laid-back laps behind the Commons before returning to Brew for some well-deserved refreshments. Thanks to Short's Brewing Company, we'll have two SBC's on tap, with 100% of proceeds going to support Michigan Mountain Bike Associations' efforts on our behalf in Lansing. MMBA is our voice at the highest level of state politics and plays a vital role in legislation dealing with trail access. We couldn't do what we do without that support, and we're doing our part to keep it going.
We'll also have great raffle items and giveaways, so make sure you're there!
Have you ridden the trails at night? It's a blast! Get yourself a decent light (450 lumens is a great place to start) and head out. Riding with a group at night is even more fun. You can typically see a little better from more headlights on the trail, but it ratchets up the fun factor by quite a bit, too! It's also very cool to look back and see a whole string of lights bouncing along through the trees.
With short days, more and more of our rides in November, December, and January are in total darkness. We're so lucky to have trails to enjoy that keep our riding going year round, especially as that transitions over to immaculately groomed trails once the snow falls.
