Rose Lake – My Final Laps

On March 8, 2018, in Fitness, MTB, by scott

The forecast looked perfect for riding a fat bike in Mid-Michigan. When we got to the trial head, the temperature was very comfortable, the trail had a nice packed base, and there were a few snowflakes falling.  It was perfect. The scenery was amazing and the ride was wonderful.

Fast forward an hour after this ride. Through a local riding group’s facebook page, it was announced that Rose Lake, the very trail on which this video was made, is no longer authorizing the riding of mountain bikes on its trails.

Saddened by the news, it suddenly struck me that this ride, and the video, were the perfect sunset ride on one of my favorite winter trails in the area.
