"Sliver Lake?" B-)

I love this ride but I like it lots better when it falls before hunting season starts. Just one less thing to worry about. As long as your changing the lake name, maybe bump it back a week for me? :wink:

We would normally hold it one week earlier, but the Dances with Dirt folks beat us to the punch.

I can finally make it this year! Been putting this one off for I don't know how long...too long, due to other things getting in the way. Let's hope nothing crops up again to take away from this ride.

Thanks, Bill--if they beat us to the date that's the way it goes. Probably not a huge deal anyway.

Geff, it's a really fun ride--lots of trail and enough dirt road to break it up nicely. Fun way to spend a few hours!

The best part (imo) is getting to ride some of the Waterloo. That trail is screaming to be multi-use (sans horses) :P .

Right on! Waterloo needs to be hooked in with the Poto...FULL TIME, so we can do true epic. Looking forward to it, as always.

That is a great ride. I even somehow found enjoyment out of having my teeth rattled for a few miles on the rail trail. That ride gives Cardiac a whole new appreciation after 40+ miles into the ride.

Awesome weather, great beer and food (Thanks, Tree Fort Bikes and AA Brewing!!) and, of course, a fantastic ride. Not much better than cruising through those beautiful meadows on Waterloo-Pinckney on a crisp fall morning!!

Thanks to Bill and all the others who put this event together. A GREAT day!!

Question / suggestion. Had a great time last year. However between my fitness level and my ride of choice ( a Heckler does not make for an efficent road bike, even dirt roads) all the road riding get to be a issue. Any chance a suggested "shorter" route be developed for those that want to enjoy the access to Waterloo, but then return to Poto trail avoiding the Lakelands trail? Kinda of like a DTC ( Double Trail Challenge)?
