I can't wait for this! Bill has done a great job getting the trails fine tuned. Should be an awesome day of riding!!

My camera was mislaid last week, so thanks to Wendy to the loaner. I managed a few shots:

The Milford Trail Challenge was awesome this year! Too bad the attendance was down from previous years - I suspect everyone thought the trails and/or the weather would be wet. As it turns out, neither was true. 3 out of our group of 4 riders completed all of the trails, and Otto did the same plus PLRA (he's an animal!). Anyone else complete everything?

A couple friends and I did the whole thing and a few others made most of the trails. Highland was extra special with all those wet roots and rocks! Hickory Glen is a good recovery ride after Highland and Milford.

Once again, Builder Bill an company did a great job setting this event up and Bill has done some great things with the Milford Trail. Many Kudos to Bill and his crew!

I just wish the equestrians would leave the signs up at Proud Lake. It's not one I would try to do on my own (tried that, got lost and a flat) because I never know where I'm at or if I'm on horse-only trails.
