Off to the Keewenaw

Heading out tomorrow morning for a nice long weekend in the Keewenaw peninsula of Michigan's Upper Peninsula. A lot of history up there in the copper mining boom of the late 1800's into the early 1900's. It's also were my great grandparents emigrated to from Finland and Sweden.

It also has some KILLER singletrack. I always like to get a shop t-shirt from the LBS of places that I visit. So as I was trying to locate the LBS in Houghton, I stumbled upon some interesting sites for trails and races. I'll leave you with some links and a video to keep you occupied until my return (like you have nothing better to do).

Wouldn't this race be just SICK? It reminds me of some of those Red Bull races they do in South Africa through the gold mines. Maybe I'll try this bad boy out next season.
