I feel sorry for those poor bastages that rode Saturday in 34 weather and rain. Oh wait, that was me!

The rain wasn't so bad, it was the hail and snow that sucked jackalope balls.

Mio Rose City Sunday

Im thinking of taking my 11 yr old up to Mio for the day, anyone been up there recently? I took him to Gladwin last year and it kind of sucked for him cause of all the sand. I am hoping Mio will be better. Just looking for some trail riding to get him acclimated better. Any other place anyone would recommend for a day trip?

Mio bull gap trails? Sandy and deep whoops. Also wide and rutted from quad usage. Finding a good line is a bit difficult.

I remember years ago when I was there the trails on the west side of M-33 where not as sandy and a little more open if I remember correctly?

I would do the South East corner of Bull Gap. It is a little sandy, but not very many whoops.

Hey I'm in new Hudson Nice mix of scooters, you have good taste. Also my bad I meant west side of 33 and just north of the trail head parking lot. That's where I remember being less sandy and more open. Wife informed me of no up north trip this Sunday as my daughter has a thing. Dammit
