Quick Stop Tuesday Night Ride 

Join QSBS for our standing Tuesday Night Ride.  It's usually a moderate paced MTB ride on mostly Blue Square trails with a few Black Diamonds to keep us humble.  Early spring and late fall rides can turn to gravel rides.  We have also been known to blow the dust off the Klunkers and get in a good Klunk when the weather is at its worst. 

  • Tuesday Nights! 6:30pm
  • Behind the Shop!
  • Bike, Bike Ride stuff! 
  • Check in with us at the shop or our Face Book page for weekly ride plans.

Casey Kasem's Top 40 

This is one of our all time favorite loops on the south trails.  Some great single track trail, a few jumps to case, and a few turns to blow.   So good it reminds us of tuning the radio in to the Top 40 every weekend.   Hit the Link below to get to RidewithGPS.

20 Mile Gravel Route 

Pretty fun 20ish mile road and gravel route.  About 50/50 road/gravel. 

Head out to the Top of The World over look past Harlow lake and loop back into town via Forestville Rd.  This is a great post work ride or early morning ride.  Gravel can be a bit rough but it goes.  Be sure to mind the mine trucks on 550.

60 Mile Palmer Mixed Surface

What a great route.  Mostly pavement with a bit of gravel and some crushed limestone on the IOHT. 

  A favorite loop for an easy to follow spring ride.  Some sweet descents on some lonely roads.  Hit it in the spring and the Escanaba River will be raging!    Hit the Link below to get the GPX file if you need it.

Jon's Favorite Klunk 

Jon loves a good Klunk.  Bust out the old rigid hardtail, commuter or mountain bike to enjoy a tour around town with some sneaky single-track.  Probably best to bring a few sodas of your choice along.  Take some time and enjoy some easy single track, some cool over looks, some great beverage stops.  No chamois need, but there will be some climbs... aaannnd some sketchy descents.
