Michigan longboarding roots are dense in distance skateboarding.  Commuting point A to B is part of everyone’s life, and it feels good on on a skateboard.  Only the past 30 years or so the majority of Americans have invested a major chunk of their savings into automobiles, and bikes- to commute point A to B.  Automotives are rad!  Bikes are pretty cool too.  But, you can’t drive an automotive on a State-Trail networks.

The Divide Distance Skateboarding Challenge- Manton, MI: https://www.facebook.com/TheDividebikerace?fref=ts

The Divide Distance Skateboarding Challenge is a hybrid skate event offering 5k/10k distance races + a hybrid push with speed sections.  Longboard skateboarding was added to the Manton, Michigan event because the road is closed for a bike race and the bikers are interested to see how skaters can keep up on a course with climbs and descents.  The course is not very technical, but does offer thrilling speed sections, corners and climbs.  There is a campground on a nice lake in Manton where we’ll camp out for the evening should you choose to stay and hang out in northern Michigan for the evening – bring a tent.  Family friendly event, until someone takes their pants off.
