Swmmba Member Meeting

Notice!

Due to a rainy forecast tonight and tomorrow, we are moving our member meeting to next Tuesday (the 28th.)
If weather cooperates we may also have some impromptu trail work starting earlier in the afternoon that day as well. Stay tuned.


Bi-Montly Meeting for all SWMMBA members. Come give your input on your local trail systems!

Meeting will be at the newly under construction Meyer Broadway trail! Bring a fat or a plus bike and get a little preview of what this trail has to offer.

Meyer Broadway Trail Day!

All hands on deck to do finishing work on the current 2-3 miles of rough cut trail!

Please bring drinking water, gloves, and a pair of loppers if you have them. Also, don’t forget your bike for “research” purposes. We hope to sneak a preview ride in after the work is done. Fat/plus preferred.

CANCELED – DTE and Poto Ride

Due to the rain today and the upcoming forecast, we are reluctantly cancelling the trip the DTE/Poto tomorrow.

Hopefully we can pick a new date soon 🤘

=======================================

Let ride at DTE and Poto! We’ll meet at the parking lot off M52 (Stockbridge Chelsea Road https://goo.gl/maps/x3cwjKmKEbL2) and split into a couple small groups depending on what pace people want.

Lets do a lap (or two depending) at DTE, then head over to Poto for a full or truncated lap there (again depending on what everyone wants.)

Afterwards we’ll find a spot for post-ride food and beverages.

This ride will be friendly for all skill levels, but is not a sanctioned or supported ride. Please be sure to bring your own food, hydration, and spare parts/tools.

A Michigan state park pass will be required for parking at both venues.
