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
