Alan builds a wheel

26 12 2009

After searching for a long time we were finally able to source some parts for Alan to build a solid trials specific wheel.  Trialtech single speed hub, Alex DX32 rim, 14ga spokes.  Solid build Alan!

Carollyn and Christina rip it up!

Thanks to Carollyn and Christina who came out for a private lesson today.  You ladies were quick studies and I’m impressed with your progression!  Both of you dialed in the correct body position, had your focus forward, and were railing those corners in no time.  Check out the pics!

2WT Marquette Trip Details

8 07 2009

The Details are finalized for the 2WT trip to Marquette on August 7, 8, and 9 – the weekend of the infamous Ore 2 Shore mountain bike race.  Here they are:
Meet to load up at 2 PM Friday August 7th. Depart by 3 PM, arrive in Marquette around 8PM.

Depart Marquette around 3:30 PM or so on Sunday August 9th and return to TC around 8:30 PM.
Cost is $100 per person for transportation, tolls,  campiste fees, campfire materials and munchies.  The only out of pocket expenses will be for meals.  Cost will go down if more than 8 attend.

I have room for 10 in my vehicle, and need a minimum of 6 to go.  There is a lot of interest so please RSVP ASAP to secure your spot.  $30 deposit is required to hold your spot.  RSVP at
I will offer instruction if it is desired.  Please let me know.

2WT will stay at the Marquette Tourist Park, a great campground  within an easy biking distance of the beach, Presque Isle, downtown Marquette and the mountain bike trailheads.  Plan on cooling off in the swimming hole right by our campsite, and hanging out around the fire in the evening.

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.

Scorching hot 2WT ride tonight!

23 06 2009

It was a hot one for sure, but we still had a record turnout for the ride.   The group was big enough that we couldn’t stay together all the time.  We had a good mix from the freeride crew – Zach, Josh, Tim and Adrian were ripping it up at speed.  Steve came out with his sons Matt and Robbie and they were instantly in the mix.  Dalton came with Scott all the way from Ludington, and left with a wish for stronger brakes!  I’m wishing for stronger brakes too.   Mark, Terri, Don and Dan sessioned the zoo rocks for a long time.  Clay, Dalton, and Charlie were digging the breakwall behind clinch park.  6 year old Charlie went from first timer last week to seasoned vet on the breakwall this week.

 Everyone is stepping it up – I’m seeing a rapid progession as we see others doing thing and it challenges us to do more.  So cool!
