Directions, maps and trail information has been provided as a guide for your planning. However, this event relies on each participant knowing their own abilities and limits and arriving prepared to safely tackle whatever challenge they choose. For more information about the difficulty of each trail that is showcased in this event, visit out Trail System Page. Guided Group Rides are an excellent way to explore the trails with experienced riders who know the locale well. We highly suggest that you plan to explore with others for moral and physical support. A helmet is required for all riding. All roads are active during this event and extreme caution should be used for all road crossings and road riding. There will be no law enforcement or volunteer presence at road crossings. All applicable laws and ordinances are in effect during this event.
Trails and paths you may ride during this event are shared-use with other riders, hikers, runners, and possibly equestrians. Always exhibit good trail etiquette to other users and respect the safety of others.
The MCMBA Mountain Bike Patrol will be on-hand in Downtown Milford and scattered on the trails throughout the day. These dedicated and skilled patrollers are ready for both medical emergencies and mechanical breakdowns on the trails. Each patroller is certified in basic first aid and CPR and carries the knowledge and tools for common bicycle mechanical issues. Our bike patrollers can be easily found in the distinctive red-and-white Mountain Bike Patrol bike jerseys and will have a matching placard on the front of their bikes.
While our patrollers are highly skilled and dedicated, the footprint of this event is too large to depend on them for all emergencies and breakdowns that may occur on the trail. Therefore, we depend on each rider to be prepared for all contingencies they may encounter while out and about, and ask that all riders look out for the well-being and safety of each other. Remember, this event is NOT a race! For all emergencies requiring police, fire, or EMS: DIAL 911. Due to the event spanning multiple municipalities and straddling two counties, always know where you are and provide a detailed location to the 911 operator to avoid delays in emergency response.
We make every attempt to provide registered riders with accurate maps (within the event booklet in your packet) to navigate to each trail, as well as clear markings on each trail as navigational aides. However, each rider must accept responsibility for their own navigation and should not rely solely on trail and event posted signage. Unfortunately, much of the chapter's permanent trail signage and temporary event signage is subject to theft and vandalism. It is an unfortunate reality that our chapter and land managers contend with regularly to ensure the malicious intent of a few does not detract from the quality of the trail and the enjoyment of the riders, however, we can not guarantee is may not affect this event.
