Suggestions for the Grand Rapids, MI area needed...
« on: July 12, 2013, 04:19:19 PM »
Running up there this Sunday and will have several hours to ride.  I know about Ft. Custer around the Kalamazoo area but is there any really great riding around GR?  Also, is Founders the best brew pub to stop at? ;D

Egypt Valley or Cannonsburg is your best bet.  Trails are short (6-8 mi)
Lots o sand pits , good climbs, fast flowy bits and lots o roots like Westwood.
If you use Strava? Do a segment search when you get to Grand Rapids and it will pull everything up a lot of segment in the area also

Thanks for the info John.  We ended up riding Ludon Park and Cannonsburg Ski area.  Ludon is a great little park that has 8-10 miles of trail all connected in a clover leaf shape.  Very similar riding to Winona Lake.  Cannonsburg Ski was really cool although short (6+ miles).  Decent amount of climbing with some great flowy sections.  Also, they've got some pretty decent gap jumps and raised obstacles (5-6 feet off of the ground) for those that are into that.  Cool area all and all.
