:lol: :lol: :lol:

Flat it is... and Michigan is mostly flat... But what you can't see in the pictures, from Lake Orion to Rochester is a downhill ride.

Coming back is quite a bit harder!

But if you slow down and look at the scenery, it's not so bad!

Sounds leisurely!! :D I don't have that luxury around here much at all. There is a railtrial and it is pretty flat for the most part, but does gradually go down one way and therefore up gradually the other way.

I can't do that. I live at the top of the hill...

Nah, I don't think so... this is just around the corner from my house...

It wouldn't make sense to drive 9 miles out of the way, and then drive 9 miles back...

Bizman,

You're more than welcome to come. And I'm sure the trail is open in January. But you might want to swap your tires out for some studded snows...
