Not familiar with it, so obviously I didn't do it. Not only that, but I can't find any reference to it on the Web. You got a URL?

There is more info here, https://michigantrails.org/events/gr...naugural-ride/ and here: https://www.mlive.com/life/2019/08/g...ake-huron.html

Unfortunately registration appears to have been 750 dollars? It isn't clear on the site or not but it better be some sort of fund raising event at that price...and even then? I've done fondos over two hundred miles for a massive fraction of that price...seems like they picked a comically large number out of thin air.

Thanks Blart. Wow, $750. I guess in fairness they say that riders will stay in hotels; so that makes the price less outrageous. But still, I expect that appeals to a vanishingly-small audience.
