Man. We missed it by days. Would have been cool to see that!

It drove by the house earlier. Very cool. 🙂

Last time I saw the Weinermobile was in Mc Allen Texas

Come down to Jackson to the Dog House & Junkyard Dog

I saw it in Canton MI with my son and John Kostyo.

Bummer! I have your whitefish.

Some of the nicest people on the river. 🤗

How fun!

Memories...😊

Hi Joel. Thanks for all you do. Have several pictures of “Joy” hanging in my house downstate.

Joy is great! Love to see her every year!

Leland wouldn't be Leland without her .

I was there several years ago and got some photos of Joy. Keep her in shape. Thanks. Hope to get back someday. Love that place.

Love the smoked whitefish

We stop and get smoked whitefish, pate’ and fish sausage every time. We were there last week!

Great place!

This exciting fall event includes a self-guided tour along the trail, where you’re free to visit any of the 27 participating wineries in any order you choose on both Saturday and Sunday.

Ticket Information:
Tickets are $40 and include a souvenir wine glass, along with a featured wine and small bite food pairing at all 27 participating wineries. After your featured pairing, most wineries offer an additional complimentary 2 tastes.

Iceman Cometh Challenge

Notes from the best-laid plans! One of the ideas for the 2020 race was to have two start lines! Each chute would send off 30-50 person waves every six seconds, alternating so that riders would hit the woods every three minutes.

You can also see the Serra Subaru of Traverse City VIP parking and two-lane, one-way traffic on W. Kalkaska!

I think that is an amazing idea. Let's plan on it for next year!!

That’s a great idea. What did you have planned for the spot that created the ridiculous back up? Perhaps a fork in the trail that funnel racers into two equally mirrored trails?

I second that motion(idea). Then all you have to do is make it cold!

My idea is have a group of ten riders go off every 5 minutes, non stop. It would take about 41 hrs to send them all off. In wave 383, bring your lights.

Join our squad and #gobybike this month! We're getting a team together for the League of Michigan Bicyclists #bikeit Challenge. Add your bike commute miles to the tally!

Chad S. has ridden every edition of the Bells Brewery Iceman Cometh Challenge, and you just know hell be on the start line in 2021! Are you hoping for another SnowMan like in 1993?

Comment on Facebook

Maybe some snow next year! Heck, every edition has been different from 64 degrees to 1 foot of snow! Long live the Iceman, well at least next year!

It would be awesome to have a Snowman version held in January.

I may ride the course that day! Great story being able to complete all of them so far!

Riding it this year whether official or not. Maybe we'll wait for snow, drink 10 beers, and take 4 hours doing it..but its happening.

Great pic, son! And by the way: today is his 46th birthday!!!😎

I have a personal score to settle with iceman! Can’t wait for 2021!

Always hoping for Snowman.

1993 was my first Iceman!

Nice work. 😁🚲😁

28 consecutive finishes!

Bad Chad!!!
