Mud, Sweat & Beers: Get your mountain bike on at Mt. Holiday
By Erin Crowell
Mountain biking and beer.
Together, they have become practically synonymous for a good time in Northern Michigan. Cross the finish line at a mountain bike race and chances are, youll see a beer tent near the timing clock. Its the reward for hard work: hammering up hills, fixing flat tires, avoiding flattening squirrels... its what mountain biking is about and its the idea behind Mud, Sweat & Beers Fat Tire Fest 2010.
On Saturday, May 1, Mt. Holiday in Traverse City will host a 20 mile and 10 mile mountain bike loop along the variable terrain of Traverse Citys east side ski hill. Mt. Holiday is the only non-profit 501c3 ski, mountain biking, and Frisbee golf area in the Midwest. All proceeds from the race will support Mt. Holiday Ski & Recreation Area.
