Our look at Michigan's mountain bike associations across the state brings us to the southwest corner of the state! SWMMA offers some great trails that serve a wide region, with Fort Custer remaining one of the top destinations in the Midwest. In 2020, they faced many of the same challenges all of us faced, perhaps maybe even tougher by the dispersed population centers that made communicating and connected tough when relegated exclusively online. In 2021, SWMMBA is looking to add more trail, but also reinvest in their members and community to bring people together in the woods.
