On Thursday, June 16th, please join us for the Grand Opening of the first 5 mile loop of this highly-anticipated new mountain bike trail (also open to foot travel) at Waterloo State Recreation Area. Be among the first to use this state-of-the-art, modern and sustainable trail, built using “flow trail” construction. We will also be revealing the rebranding of the trail to the community, including a new trail name and logo.
Meet at the trailhead (west off M-52, 5 miles north of Chelsea and 1/2 mile south of North Territorial Rd) at 10:45am for the 11:00am trail dedication and ribbon cutting, followed immediately by the inaugural 5 mile ride/hike/run on the new trail.
Bottled water and cookies will be provided.
REI will be on site offering light mechanical support beginning at 9:30am. If you need air in your tires, lubrication on your chain, saddle position adjustment, etc., just come out early and REI will be there to help you before the ride.
Immediately after, we will continue the celebration at Chelsea Alehouse with lunch and beverages. A celebration cake will be provided by Potawatomi Mountain Biking Association.
Can’t make it out that early? Join us for an after work ride, hike, or run!
Meet at the new trailhead at 6:00pm for a 6:15pm departure. We will follow up the evening ride/hike/run with pizza and beverages at Jet’s Pizza in Chelsea. After ride cake will be provided by Potawatomi Mountain Biking Association.
