TPM Riders Rock The MS 150

Teammates Brittany Nigh, Bill Nigh, Mike Laufenberg and Ross Lemke, with friend Graeme Reid.
A Wisconsin tradition at the beginning of every August, the MS 150 is a 2-day bike tour that attracts hundreds of riders to raise funds for the fight against multiple sclerosis. This year’s ride raised more than $1.1 million!

WEMS Thunderdown in the Underdown

In several weeks some of us are tackling one of the most technically challenging courses WEMS has to offer; Thunderdown in the Underdown on July 18th. Bill Nigh, Brittany Nigh, Suzanne Letellier, and I will be attending. Give it some thought. Might be a whole lot of fun, along with some self-selected suffering.

Trail Work At New Fane

The members of Team Pedal Moraine don’t just ride the local mountain bike trails, they also work to keep the trails open. In the photo above, TPM’s Bill Nigh is using a gas-powered trimmer to knock down some vegetation that was encroaching on the singletrack today at New Fane.

Bill has permission from the Department of Natural Resources to use power equipment to maintain the trails at New Fane and Greenbush. But everyone can help. Something as simple as picking up trash or moving a broken tree branch to the side of the trail goes a long way.

Team Pedal Moraine Update - May 2015

Racing season is well under way, with Team Pedal Moraine hosting the first race of the Wisconsin Endurance Mountain Bike Series (WEMS), the Northern Kettles Endurance Challenge, on May 9.  It was a perfect day for a mountain bike race, confirmed by the solid turnout of riders for all 3 races.  Four TPM members were able to jump into the 3 hour race, with Bill Nigh grabbing the 4th place podium spot out of 30 men.

TPM also had solid results at the first WORS race of the year in Iola, on May 3.  Of note, John Hughes placed 2nd in the Male 40-44 Age Group in the Comp division and Larry Hipps landed on the 3rd Place podium step in the Male 50-54 Age Group in the Sport division.

Rhinelander was the site of the second WORS race, on May 17.  Larry Hipps and John Hughes both impressed again, with 2nd place Age Group finishes.

At the second WEMS race – Stump Farm 100, TPM entered 8 riders with Jeff Melcher taking 2nd place in the 60 Mile Solo Men’s race, Bill Nigh finishing 3rd in the 30 Mile Solo Men’s race, and Brittany Nigh and Suzanne Letellier landing in 2nd and 3d place, respectively, in the 30 Mile Solo Women’s race.
