Greater Detroit Area?


Recommended Posts

Hey everyone! 

 

I'm just checking in to see if there are any rebels in the greater Detroit area.  I'm new to NF and am looking for a support group.  Hit me up if you're in the area and are looking to connect.

 

Thanks!

Greetings NF friends!

 

This is my first post.  I discovered NF a little over a week ago and have been nerding out to it since.  Seriously, I have probably read over 50 of steve's articles ("multi-tasking" at work).  B/C knowledge is power. 

 

I live & work in the Farmington Hills area of Detroit.  I have gotten 2 of my close friends interested in NF too, one from the NE side of detroit (hopefully moving to Ferndale soon) and another in Grand Rapids.

So I didn't realize I had to follow my own posts... Sorry for not getting back soon :)

 

I definately want to do some local stuff with some people.  In particular I would like to schedule an event to go to the ropes corse in Birmingham.  Not sure if you guys are interested in getting together, but I need friends who like to do physical things.

 

Let me know what you guys think!!

That's awesome!!  I'm just now starting to get into more outdoor activities.  I've participated in the Slow Roll Detroit which was fun.  I think I'd perfer more of a trail environment but it was cool to go on a bike ride with 3000+ people.

I generally do "trails only" -- it's just safer.  MTGA has a great resource:

... and it also publishes a glossy Michigan Trails *magaizine* every year, which is a picture-fest of maps and contact information.  Check your local bike shop!

 

I've ridden the St. Clair Co. "Bridge to Bay" route a couple of times, occasionally on the bike ride there called "Blue Water Ramble."  Closer to home we have the Border-to-Border Trail (washtenaw County) and, staging from South Lyon, a series of trails that run to Kensington Metro Park.

 

The biggest "invitational" I've ridden has been the AABTS' very own "One Helluva Ride," which is the second Saturday of July every year.  We top out at about 2000 riders for that ...

 

Maybe see you on the roads!  :)  --Tombo

That's awesome! I grew up in that area and am super familiar! I wanted to start biking Stoney this year. The 6 miles is a little intimidating though, not gonna lie :)

Thanks!  We just got the BF his bike and a bike rack.  We biked from the Harbors (on hall and heidenreich) to the Meijer on Grosbeck and Cass.  It was intense but awesome!

Hiya! I live in Allen Park (downriver) and work in B-ham. I haven't done trails or anything though, but I have a sweet Schwinn beach cruiser!

Since 8/23 is this weekend and there hasn't been any response I'm going to go with a "this won't be happening". I'm still open to doing a group bike ride. If anyone else wants to try and set up a day/time I'd be game.

Thanks!

I live in Center Line (10 and Van Dyke), but I run out at Stoney Creek on the West Branch mountain bike trails. Anybody still watching this thread?

We do not rise to the level of our expectations in a fight.

 

We fall to the level of our training.
