    Detroit area riding, November

    Is there much riding around the Detroit area? I'm going to be in the region for a month and might get a few days off where I could ride, assuming its worth it to bring my bike with me.

    No disrespect to the guy above but those trails are pretty lame.

    Check out Highland Rec, Potawatomi, or Pontiac Lake.

    Way better riding and it would be worth bringing the bike.

    There's about 250 miles of singletrack within an hour's drive of Detroit, with a fair amount of variety. There's a nice trail guide at Trail Guide Michigan Mountain Biking Association and a handy google map at https://maps.google.com/maps/ms?ie=U...96626d7e7fe810 that might be helpful.

    definitely check out Poto.
    Island Lake Rec area if you want to get a fast ride in.
    Mabury is short, but fun.
    Tree Farm doesn't have a lot of climbing, but is still a fun ride with some nice features thrown in
    If you have time, drive west to Battle Creek area and check out Fort Custer

    Pontiac Lake, Highland, and Potowatomi are probably the highlights of the area. Pontiac Lake and Poto are faster trails, where Highland is twisty, narrow and technical.
