Riding Poto - A Trip to Hell and Back

The Octo Challenge: Man vs. Mountain from Daniel Staudacher on Vimeo.


On Monday the OctoDude, a.k.a. the "Evil Wolverine," and myself took on the Potawatomi Trail located at Pinckney State Recreation Area just a short distance from Hell, Michigan.

Unfortunately, The Dude recently bought a new pair of clip-in pedals, and this was his first experience using them...
On a 17-mile course featuring "serious hills" and rated advanced.
But I enjoyed my trip to Hell (it was a dry heat). It's now my new favorite trail.
Octavian? His mileage may vary...

From now on, if you take a picture of a cool sign you have to be in it! That is a bad ass trail, and I have no beef with it for kicking my ass. It serves me right for the lack of respect I showed it. Like I said, things will be different in one month!

Poto definitely opened up a can of whoop-ass on us - and I think it's safe to say we both looked (and smelled) quite frightful afterward...

The light was going fast, and I didn't have decent tripod. That's my excuse for opting out of the pic and I'm stickin' to it! :))
