Kettles and Bits Confusion

Apparently there has been some confusion as to whether there is a six mile drive at Kettles and Bits this weekend.  There is not.  A six mile and a 12 mile drive were approved at the UMECRA convention in January, but somehow that is not what is listed on the ride flyer, and the flyer is the official source.  Ride managers are offering a 15 mile drive both days.

Also note that a decision as to whether the ride/drive will take place will be made Wednesday night.  Watch Facebook and the UMECRA website for updates.  At this point, the trails are closed because of too much rain resulting in soggy trails.  Jill mentioned that the DNR may decide that riders are alright, but carts are not allowed.

Fingers crossed that the event can take place this weekend!
