New Years Day ride at Brighton Rec!!

January 1 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm


Join the Poto MBA for a fun New Years Day ride at Brighton Rec!! Let’s kick off 2024 with a casual no drop group ride at the Brighton trails.

This will be a fun ride focused on a casual pace with possibility for a more faster group to split off. The main group will be intermediate focused with an average pace of 8-9mph on fat bikes, depending on conditions (do your snow dance now).This is a no drop, so we will be stopping at the main intersections to regroup. We will plan for a lap of Murray with about 13-15 miles for the ride. After the ride, feel free to  continue to explore or hang out.

Bright Rec Murray lake trail and the extension loops (Lost, Found and Ralphs), offer riders a fun and varied riding experience. There are challenging sections to test riders of all abilities. From flat open areas to technical ups and downs, and even a much more challenging section called Raccoon swamp to give you a real test of what Torn shirt is like.

Ride details:

When: Monday January 1st 2023. 11am meet with target of 11:15am roll out

Where: Brighton Rec main trail head https://maps.app.goo.gl/fQMwoRcS5kvLFazA9

Length: 13-15 miles

Pace: 8-9mph average on fat bikes (possible to have a faster group if enough people show up and are interested)

What to bring: Your bike (fat bike because January but maybe skinny tire because Michigan), proper riding attire for cold temps. It will be January, so dress warm for a ride. After ride hangs jacket and hat, because not moving is much colder than moving.

What to expect: We will ride bikes, it will be fun, and maybe we will get Lost and Found with Ralph’s help.
