Dirt road or trail ride. Other details TBD.

I will recon some local trails this weekend to determine if they are rideable. If not, I'm thinking ~15-20 mile dirt road ride with fewer (but non-zero) hills. Kinda hard to find zero hills in Oakland County anyway. :D

Yesterday's snow, being of the moister variety, should help in terms of trail riding. This opens more possibilities, including Bald Mountain North Unit. It also may close some others like Stony Creek, which will likely be groomed for XC skiing.

While Bald Mtn N was groomed and very nice, you would likely need a fat bike to really enjoy it. Consequently, I think roads are our best option. Here are a few of my "standard" routes from SCHS for different distances...

Figure on averaging <=10MPH in conditions like these. You can derive exposure times for yourself.

I started this group to share my new-found love of mountain biking.
We welcome anyone to join, especially those that share our love of drinking and having a good time as well as our passion for mountain biking.
We normally meet every Saturday at one of the east trails and on Sundays on the west side and Wednesdays on both sides.
NEW for the 2015 season, I will host Tuesday east-side and Thursday west-side rides to give our members even more opportunities to get out and ride.
With an open group, I expect to get people of varying skill levels. All our rides are "non-drop", no one is left behind or waiting on the trails.
However, we offer "Endurance/Training rides", in which we will ride one loop hard and fast without stopping, if we can. These will usually be scheduled before our weekly rides.
After each ride, we can hang out at the park or head to a local bar for food and drinks.
We can also meet at races, rides or any gathering that has to do with cycling of any kind.
The primary focus of this group is mountain biking. However, from time to time, I will offer up different activities, such as scuba diving. And, off-season, we mainly ski and snowboard.
Lastly, as with most other biking groups, we are responsible and will not ride trails that are in a bad condition, i.e. soft or muddy. Also, we clear and clean-up the trails when we can.

I'm surprised by the level of growth I've seen since becoming an organizer, it's given me more confidence in my abilities.
