Tree Farm Relay July 26th

People keep showing up, so we keep putting it on!!


Get ready for the 9th Annual Tree Farm Relay Event at Lakeshore Park in Novi, presented by the MCMBA and Team Tree Farm. This is the same format you have all grown to love… a unique 4-person team relay race! The course features lots of hills, passing zones and fun! This is a perfect race for the beginner looking to see what team / endurance racing is all about and for experienced racers looking to test their skills against rival teams. If you want to try an endurance race, but aren’t ready for the distance, this is the perfect event for you to see what the team racing concept is all about.

We changed the start of the Sport class last year to ease up congestion, and it worked great so we’ll do it again. Plus, we are officially changing the “Other” category into a Costume category. It will be the same distance as all Sport classes, but a time bonus will be rewarded for the best costumes. You don’t have to finish first to get first place!!!

2014 Milford Challenge

Join us at the 9th annual Milford Challenge, a family friendly celebration of the great singletrack trails surrounding scenic Milford. Bikers pick their own course: Highland, Milford, Island Lake, Kensington, Proud Lake, Hickory Glen – easily rideable from Milford with great paved bike paths and a minimum of road riding. You can tailor this anywhere from a fun trail ride with friends to an all-day 100 mile epic!

Participants will be treated to a live musical performance by the Orbitsuns beginning at 1 pm. Please stop by, share your stories and adventures with other riders, and enjoy the food and vibes of downtown Milford!

Participation fee is still just $15, and all proceeds benefit the MCMBA and support the local trails that you love.

Advanced registration is available online at Race Services

Day-of registration runs from 7:30 to noon at Main Street Grill, 327 N Main Street. A detailed map and suggested routes will be provided at registration, along with a wrist band and tickets for two free beverages!

Commemorative T-shirts for the event are available online at www.booster.com/milford

Trail’s Edge Bike Shop (525 N Main Street) will be hosting a kid’s Bike Rodeo at their store from 11 am to 1 pm, and members of their team will be available to lead group rides through nearby trails from 10 am to 1 pm. Stop by and enjoy the merriment!

This is a self supported and self directed ride. Bring water, food, money, cell phones, friends – whatever you need for a day on the trails. Camping facilities and cabins are available at Proud Lake Recreation Area, a three mile ride from downtown.
