Description

Come join us for a day of riding bikes around Milford's well-connected trail system!

Did you know that 5 single track mountain bike trails are fully accessible from Downtown Milford?  Join the Motor City Mountain Biking Association for the Milford Bike Fest and Trail Challenge as we showcase some of our favorite mountain bike trails, raise money for trail maintenance and youth cycling, and then celebrate by supporting local downtown establishments!

Tailor your ride from family-friendly, paved-path rides to an all-day epic adventure combining all 5 trails and totaling up to 100 miles.

Start in Downtown Milford and Create Your Own Adventure with fellow riders across the vast trail system.  After riding, jgrag some nourishment from the local establishments and celebrate a day well spent exploring and enjoying the trail system.

This event is not a race; all skill levels are welcome to this Bike Fest and Trail Challenge.  Visit the links on the left to learn more about the connected trail system and how to prepare for the event.  Back this year is the 100-mile challenge!  Head over to the link on the left to learn more about how to complete this epic adventure!

The cost is $20 per person during pre-registration.  You'll get a beverage ticket*, a map booklet, name plate for your bike, and a warm fuzzy feeling that all proceeds will go to improving and building new singletrack in the area.  As always, youth 15 and under are free with a adult registration!  Day-of registration jumps to $25.

*You'll receive one beverage ticket that will be good for a beer from the MCMBA Beer Tent at Main Street Grill (graciously provided by River's Edge Brewing!), or a pop from Main Street Grill.  Additional beverages will be available for purchase from Main Street Grill or other downtown establishments.  We'll do our best to accommodate everyone, but the MCMBA Beer Tent will be first-come, first-served.

Event proceeds will benefit cycling in Southeast Michigan! Visit "About the MCMBA" trail advocacy in the metro Detroit area.

About the Motor City Mountain Biking Association
Established in 1990 as part of the MMBA South East chapter, the Motor City Mountain Biking Association chapter is a section 501c3 advocacy organization focused on preserving, protecting, and promoting mountain bike access and diverse riding opportunities on Metropolitan Detroit’s public lands through education, communication, and unified action.

Each year, our active membership contributes over 3,600 hours of service, primarily developing and maintaining area trail systems. The Bureau of Labor calculates volunteer time at an hourly rate of $23, which means that the MCMBA annually contributes over $82,000 in direct labor to our local parks and mountain bike trails. Our fund raising events help support this work by purchasing tools and equipment for our volunteers, providing materials for bridges, kiosks, signs, and other capital improvements for our parks.

Working with our partner organizations, our chapter maintains approximately 85 miles of singletrack across 11 mountain bike trails in Oakland and Wayne counties. In addition, we are pursuing development opportunities for new trail systems in several communities.  

The Motor City Mountain Biking Association is a member of the Michigan Mountain Biking Association (MMBA), a federation of mountain biking clubs focused on state-wide advocacy issues, and an affiliate of the International Mountain Bike Association (IMBA).

The MCMBA, and the trails you ride, depend on your support and membership.

About the Huron Valley Bike Club

Interested in getting your tires dirty?  The Huron Valley Bike Club exists to get more kids and families together to mountain bike and to demonstrate that cycling can be a lifelong sport. Our participants range from as young as age 4 to 18. Parents do not have to ride for their children to participate in the club, nor must you be in the Huron Valley Schools district to participate.  The club meets on Thursdays from May through August and meets at the soccer fields across from the Milford YMCA.  Riders are split up by ability and join on rides with coaches from the Huron Valley United Racing team, a competitive mountain biking team comprised of K-12 student athletes who compete at team events and at the Michigan Scholastic Cycling Association (MiSCA) 6-race youth-only race series each fall.  Coaches are registered and certified through MiSCA standards.
