Triple Trail Challenge
Group Ride Details:

Triple Trail Challenge, presented by Tree Fort Bikes, is one the longest running fund raisers for the Potawatomi Mountain Biking Association. We got creative and worked hard to design an event for 2020 that is approved by the Michigan DNR (MiDNR). The resulting solution fulfills event caps and social distancing requirements, while allowing us to ride trails that are only open to mountain bikers one time per year for this very unique event.

How did we pull off this magic, you ask? Well, we will run Triple Trail Challenge for FIVE days straight this year – Wednesday, September 16th through Sunday, September 20th! In order to fulfill social distancing requirements, the event is capped at 100 riders per day. Though this may not let us reach our typical annual rider count of up to 1500 riders, it’s still a pretty dang good solution.

The best part, EVERY SINGLE PENNY goes to support the organization that builds and maintains the trails you love to ride, the Potawatomi Mountain Biking Association.

For more information about this year’s Triple Trail Challenge logistics and restrictions, please visit: http://www.TripleTrail.com

You will need to pick one of the 5 days during the event duration as we are capping each day at 100 participants. This is the only time of the year that we are permitted by the MiDNR to tie the Poto and DTE trails together by riding the Pinckney-Waterloo hiking trail.

You will need to pre-register and pre-pay for the event as there will be no day-of registration. You will then be able to pick up your number plate, neck gaiter, and map at Tree Fort Bikes located at 1866 Whittaker Rd, Ypsilanti, between September 1st and September 15th. Alternately, pick up will be available for one night only at Wolverine State Brewing Co. at a tent in the parking lot on Sunday, September 13th between 6pm to 9pm. Again, registration must be done online in advance of pick up! No exceptions.

You will be required to have a day specific number plate on your bike while you ride during the event, and you will only be able to ride on the day that your plate indicates. The DNR has indicated that this will be strictly enforced.

If you are riding on Wednesday, Friday, or Sunday, use a Clockwise route.

If you are riding on Thursday or Saturday, use a Counterclockwise route.
