Mitten State Weekend Preview

So you got time to kill this weekend and you're not one of the 10% of Michiganders who is unemployed? You've got money to burn and a Chevy Silverado full of gas to get you somewhere? Or maybe you ARE unemployed, but you're on the dole and living the High Life? At least till the unemployment runs out.

Uncle Bob's Magical Mystery Tour kicks off in Waterford, Michigan this Sunday (4/26). Uncle Bob has been hip to cycling almost as long has he's loved The Dead. That's a lot of love. Expect to see the RV and tent parked at the trail head all weekend. The Pontiac Lake Time Trial is the first race in the Tailwind MTB series this year. Beware! It's USAC sanctioned, so bring a bucket of money to buy a license.

There's a Mountain Bike Crit race at the BMX park in Bland Crapids on Saturday (4/25). If you're in the 616 and don't want to drive all over this sandbar of a State you can hit this race up for only $15.00!

Quick Release is hosting a spring training criterium (that's a skinny tire bike race) in Ann Arbor on Sunday (4/26). If anybody makes it to A2 stop by Grizzly Peak and pound a pint of Stout for me.

The Western Chapter of the MMBA is hosting a trail work day at Lutton Park (east of Rockford) And the Ionia Rec Area on Sunday (4/26).

Game 5 of the Griffins v. Bulldogs AHL first round playoff series is Friday Night (4/24) at The Van. The series is tied 2-2 and McCarty is still in town and playing with the Griffs. The Red Wings swept Columbus last night so you can save that $500 you hid from your wife for playoff tickets at The Joe and head to downtown Bland Crapids for some playoff hockey. Get there early and tip a few at Hop Cat, which has the best on on tap beer menu in the State.
