Join Tree Fort Bikes in supporting the Potawatomi Mountain Biking Association. Proceeds from Triple Trail Challenge will be dedicated to the Poto Revitalization Project (aka Poto Project).
The Potawatomi Mountain Bike Association has set a target to raise $300K over three years to support enhancing the sustainability and user experience of the Potowatomi trail.
They need your support this year more than ever, as this is their largest fundraiser of the year. Be sure to bring food and water for the ride, as well as a spare tube, pump and all the other things you might need for a 45 plus mile ride! On Saturday only, we will have one aid station on the course near midway, but it is only intended to be supplementary.
Please note: the ride will alternate direction on the DTE trail as per usual based on the day.
The ride starts at the Poto trailhead at Pinckney State Park, where you will meet the climbs and descents that Poto is known for, gradually progressing into Waterloo then the DTE Energy Foundation Trail, sampling some of all 4 of the loops. Weave in a few gravel roads then find your way back to the Poto for an epic finish and party at Silver Lake!
