The X100, Michigans Ultimate Mountain Bike Xventure, is approximately 50 miles of twisting single track that winds in and out of county gravel roads, two tracks and fire roads and approximately 50 miles of dirt roads and two tracks Bikers roll through the most beautiful terrain Michigan has to offer: deep woods and steep hills dotted with pristine lakes, streams and ponds.
