This race, now in its 33rd year, started before a single knobby bike tire rolled around
Potowatami Trail.
"Poto", is a big bad loop of hilly kick your butt wilderness single track trail. Due to the fact that most Americans are comatose couch potatoes, the 12,000 acres of Pinckney Recreation Area remains a wilderness, even though it's only a 55 minute drive from metro Detroit.
I do enjoy a solitary run on Poto but once a year it's fun to lace em' up and scamper through the woods with a thousand of my best friends. It's a celebration of dirt, sweat and pain that renews my faith in humanity.
Come join us!
