This race, now in it's 31st year, started before a single knobby bike tire rolled around Potowatami Trail.
"Poto", is a big bad loop of hilly kick your butt wilderness single track trail. Due to the fact that most Americans are comatose couch potato wimps, the 12,000 acres of Pinckney Recreation Area remains a wilderness, even though it's only a 55 minute drive from metro Detroit.
I do enjoy a solitary run on Poto but once a year it's fun to lace em' up and scamper through the woods with a thousand of my best friends. It's a celebration of dirt, sweat and pain that renews my faith in humanity.
