Folks, it was an unforgettable day at the 2018 edition of Mud, Sweat and Beers this past weekend. 

As many of you know, the directors of Mud, Sweat and Beers, NMMBA board members and volunteers, plus ample support from Norte put in a massive amount of man power to make sure this great event went off safely on Saturday. For two weeks, we pulled out all the stops (and all our axes) to shovel snow, cut trail, and literally chop ice in order to clear sections of the Vasa Pathway and several miles of singletrack to make a course that was not just rideable, but really enjoyable, too. 

All the work was well worth it. This Saturday was a truly unforgettable coming-together of our cycling community, with hundreds of enthusiastic, healthy, and friendly folks joining forces to make the 9th edition of MSB one of the most spectacular yet. We want to give a special nod to board members Mike Walter and Chad Jordan for racing even after plenty of hard work shoveling. We also need to thank Tom White, Dan Ellis, and all the other folks who manned their shovels over the past ten days to help make this course possible. We're also very thankful to Norte and Jason Plum for doing a lot of work to mark the course and make sure no one ended up in Kalkaska on race day! 

This summer, join us in supporting more great events, great memories, and great rides. Your membership helps us keep the trails not just open, but a thriving place to connect, relax, and enjoy nature. If you enjoyed this past weekend, we have great news; we're only getting started!
