This is a old flier that I had saved to give everyone the theme of it. Any body done this in the past or are planning it in 2009. It is allot of fun. There is usually some snow left, but with this years snowfall there might be allot left. I checked with Peacock Ltd for a 09 date but it has not been set yet, but should be set here soon.

Where is it?

Oops sorry about that I didn't realize the old flier didn't have a location on it. It's based at Peacock Ltd,(www.peacockltd.com) which is a cycle dealer north of Baldwin on 37. They ride the Little Manistee Trail/ Lincoln Hills Trail system. There is a connector from their dealership to the trail system. You sign up at the dealership, ride, then return to the dealership for prize drawings and snacks after the ride.

I rode it a couple of years ago. My brother and I on bikes, my dad and a couple of cousins on quads. It was great. I want to try and make it this year.

This was the first time I had rode on studded tires. I just used the hex headed ice screws on some 1/2 worn mx tires. It shocked me how well the bike gripped. I did hit the ground once that year, had er leaded over to far on a corner and lost bite ans slid out. But it was a softer landing than on the dirt. It would be great to have someone to ride it with. My brother sold his bike last fall so I now have no one to ride with. I mentioned it to my cousins but not sure if they will make it.

Never done this ride but used to do the Snowflake with the old sales guy from extreme then fox. That ride was first Sunday in December and we rode in a lot of snow some years.
Is this all two tracks or can you get through the single tracks too? If the single tracks are a possibility I will go if anyone wants someone to ride with, even better if i can find someone to share a ride with/split gas with.
(I got a truck and a sled trailer available)
