Rampart Reservoir Ride

1 10 2009

I had the privilege of riding the Rampart Reservoir trail with Kevin Miller, Jon Dale, and friend Stephen.  It was beautiful rolling singletrack with some serious technical sections to make it really interesting.  We stopped and played on all the fun stuff.  Colorado riders are more used to those fun rocky technical challenges I love so much.  Nice riding guys!  Thanks for the killer ride.

The most technically challenging singletrack in the midwest, self-collapsing tents, thimbleberries, carp bars, and a wicked thunderstorm in the middle of the night were all part of our Marquette trip.  Don, Mark, Terri, Jim, Diana, and Cyndi all got an excellent sampling of Michigan’s toughest riding and they did exceptionally well!





2WT Marquette Trip August 7, 8 and 9

21 06 2009

The reservations have been made!  2WT is taking a trip to Marquette Michigan the weekend of the infamous Ore 2 Shore Mountain Bike Race.  Come and experience some of the outstanding technical mountain biking the Marquette area has to offer.  I will lead an instructional clinic Saturday morning prior to the organized rides.  This trip is an excellent tune-up for 2WT’s trip to Moab in November!

 Trip costs will be finalized and posted up shortly.

Are you racing in the Ore 2 Shore?  You can travel with us!  Our campground is within blocks of the Superior Dome – the finish of the O2S.  Avoid the post race shuttle hassle (the only shuttle offered by the race) and let us take you to the start for a nominal fee.

2WT will stay at the Marquette Tourist Park, a great campground  within an easy biking distance to downtown and the surrounding areas.  Plan on cooling off in the swimming hole right by our campsite, biking into town for dinner, and hanging out around the fire in the evening.

Here are some technical challenges within feet of our campsite!

One of the trails we will ride is Bareback – Marquette’s answer to Moab’s technical terrain.  Would you like to ride this trail with confidence and style?
