Trip Snapshot

Copper Harbor… look it up and you’ll find it has some of the best in the midwest!  Shuttle to the top to save the legs then get ready to grind down the slopes back to town, which happens to be on the shoreline of Michigan’s prized Lake Superior.  Mix intense riding with epic stories, quality hang time and the beauty of the Upper Peninsula of Michigan and you have a winning combination of manhood.  Full suspension, hydraulic disc brakes, and a frame designed for rugged impact bikes are a must and will be provided if you don’t have your own, so don’t let a lack of gear stop you from this powerful trip!  Add to expensive toys and adventure the sharpening conversation around a bon fire under a sky full of stars and you have a glimpse of Project Forty at its best.

Safety

All Project Forty instructors have been trained in their focused discipline and carry a minimum 2 years experience as a Guide Partner, under direct supervision from a current and certified instructor.  Biking instructors hold a Wilderness Advanced First (WAFA) or higher and have trail experience on the given routes.  All bikes are inspected before use in the program to ensure that braking power, suspension, gear ratios, and tires are adequate for trail terrain and grade.  Helmets are to be worn at all times on the bike.
