WMMBA “Turkey Burner Ride“.

Once again this ride will be held on the Friday following Thanksgiving (November 29th, 2013) at the Deep Lake trailhead, Yankee Springs Recreation Area. Arrive in time to depart the parking lot at 10:00am+/- plan on riding for a couple hours. Enjoy the holiday with the last organized WMMBA Ride of 2013. All levels are invited, as we will break into 2 or 3 groups depending on the speed and experience of those in attendance.

The Deep Lake trail is open to riding during the deer hunting season, it is also open to deer hunters. Please use good sense and wear bright clothing. Yes, it may be ugly, and out of style, but you just never know what you may win a prize for at one of these rides. And, you’ll be safer!

Following the ride, there are several places to meet friends for lunch local to the area: The Sand Bar on M-179 just west of Briggs Rd (Shell Station at corner), serving local MI. beers and good food. Or try the Waldorf Brewery in downtown Hastings serving great food and their local beers.

Please pass this along to your friends and we’ll see you for the Turkey Burner. RSVP not required, just show up and feel that turkey burn

The Score Bar and Grill is launching their new “Craft Beer” line and will be tapping 120 craft beers and they would like us to help out on their new venture.

So, for one night only, they will be giving back 10% of everything they sell to the WMMBA!

All we have to do is show up, have some good food and maybe a craft beer(or so) and they will be giving back to us!

To make sure we are hungry and thirsty we will be meeting beforehand at the Cannonsburg Ski Area Trail (WMMBA) for a group ride around 5:30PM.

We’ll have a nice ride and head over to the Score for fun, food and craft beer!

We currently have about 2-3 miles of trail that needs to be ridden in so, why not throw a bit of a cook out/party and have you great folks do the task?
Wahlfield has some nice topography that we’ve taken advantage of!  Lots of bench cut trail, some bridge work and so far a nice flowing trail.
Simply show up sometime after 6PM, have a nice ride and about 7:30PM we’ll have a quick meeting where you can find more details about the rest of this trail along with some of the other things the WMMBA has up their sleeve.
Plus, we will have the grill fired up and flippin burgers and brats!  And hey, if you got a great side dish to pass, please brings it (not required, but welcomed).
So, bring your friends, your bike, your appitite, a chair (I always seem to forget that one) and your favorite beverage and join us for an evening of riding, food and fun!
Look forward to seeing you there!
