I did poorly.

I rode a fair amount locally, but only made it to Levis for out-of-the-area riding. A weak excuse would be to point out that several weekends were taken up by weed whacking. Lots of weed growth due to the loads of rain. Hopefully this summer will be drier!

Not just mountain biking...

What WI trail do you want to ride this season? And how did you do on last year's list?

Here is the thread from last year. http://forums.mtbr.com/showthread.php?t=625326&highlight=bucket+list

This year I am stepping over the border and want to ride Copper Harbor, MI. Sadly, last year I did not get to the Raven Trail.
We want to spend a week at Bear Paw Outdoor and ride their trails, Nicolet Roche, and try that whitewater kayaking action. Followed by fun and frivolity in their pub!

On account of a freak tendon slicing hand injury last July 3rd, I did pretty poorly. I missed all of July, August, and September.

So this year I'll stick with Underdown, complete Roche (I was there when the tornado damage was still an issue), and Raven.

Stayed very local last year aside from a debacle of a trip to Hayward which included no riding. This year, hope to get to Levis, Cam Rock, & Roche.

Got to quite a few on the list: Roche, Levis, Nine-Mile, Lowes Creek.

Did not make it to Copper Harbor or Marquette. Those are still on the list. Need a week up in that area of the world. And I will add a weekend at the CAMBA trails just to make it more unattainable ;) Also the new trail system at the quarry in Northern MN, I forget the name.

So many trails, so little time.......

Last June we had so much rain, I recall I went to a spin class June 28th! Just to get on a bike once in June. After typing that, it doesn't seem possible. Perhaps I am remembering it incorrectly.
If Reforestation Camp is good for one thing, its riding in the pouring rain. I can scratch that off the list. (Note to self, Reforestation is more fun in the rain)

Didn't go to HPT, but I went to Underdown and now I need to go hammer that again and again.

I'd like to go do Southern Kettles this year, haven't been there in a while.

Nothing much specific planned I'm just going to go ride where my heart lungs and legs desire. ;)

I'd like to do it but the entry fee was out of line. Over a hundred bucks if you weren't preregistered. :eekster:
I just signed up, it is only 80 right now.
After doing the race last year, you can tell it was money well spent. A lot of planning and orginization went into making that race a success.

As far as events: Can't miss out on the B.a.L.L.S ride, Urban Assault in Mad-Town, Pitch Black Single Track, assorted Viking Biking Club Poker Rides, the Barnyard Classic 2011, and hopefully the Snowbike Enduro II.

Got out once last fall to quarry ridge for about an hour on a rainy day, too much school work and new motorcycle. Want to get up to hayward, roche, and definately levis mounds at least once, been wanting to ride there for a few years
