Milford Bike Festival (Guided Group Rides)
June 5 @ 9:00 am - 1:00 pmFree – $25
Kid’s Rides presented by Huron Valley Mountain Bike Club – Depart at 10:00 AM
Let’s get more kids out on bikes! MCMBA is thrilled to have Huron Valley United Racing, Milford’s local MiSCA team, returning to host some fabulous kids rides! All rides will depart at 10:00 AM and end around noon. Adult chaperones will be present, and parents are welcome to ride, though not required to be present during the ride. No one will be left behind, each ride will have an adult sweep! All routes use paved path and singletrack, no roads are part of any of these rides. MOUNTAIN BIKES REQUIRED! You do not need the latest and greatest carbon steed to ride with us. Any bike with properly functioning components and wider, knobby tires will do. Please make sure riders come prepared with water, spare tubes, and basic tools if you can carry them. Ride chaperones can assist with any trailside repairs that may take place.
BEGINNER RIDE – 5-8 miles utilizing the Milford/Kensington bike paths and portions of the Milford mountain bike trail. This is a great ride for kids who want to get a taste of what mountain biking is like in a group setting while still having fun!
INTERMEDIATE – 12-15 miles using the Milford paved path, sections of the Milford mountain bike trail, and Proud Lake.
EXPERIENCED – Very similar route to the Intermediate ride, but with more mileage at Proud Lake at a more spirited pace. Plan for 20-25 miles total.

FROM THE EVENT SITE:
Come join us for a day of riding bikes around Milford’s well-connected trail system!
Did you know that 5 single track mountain bike trails are fully accessible from Downtown Milford? Join the Motor City Mountain Biking Association for the Milford Bike Fest and Trail Challenge as we showcase some of our favorite mountain bike trails, raise money for trail maintenance and youth cycling, and then celebrate by supporting local downtown establishments!
Tailor your ride from family-friendly, paved-path rides to an all-day epic adventure combining all 5 trails and totaling up to 100 miles.
Start in Downtown Milford and Create Your Own Adventure with fellow riders across the vast trail system. After riding, grab some nourishment from the local establishments and celebrate a day well spent exploring and enjoying the trail system.
This event is not a race; all skill levels are welcome to this Bike Fest and Trail Challenge.

The cost is $20 per person during pre-registration. You’ll get a beverage ticket*, a map booklet, name plate for your bike, and a warm fuzzy feeling that all proceeds will go to improving and building new singletrack in the area. As always, youth 15 and under are free with an adult registration! Day-of registration jumps to $25.
