Edward Vielmetti tipped us off to the Miner’s Revenge bicycle race in Greenland (Michigan) which takes place July 11 & 12. He writes:
Here’s a novel reuse of an old copper mine – the Miner’s Revenge bicycle race is using a 1/3 mile long section of the mine no longer in active use as a part of the race course. Bring your own lights – it’s dark in there.
The race is July 11-12, 2009, with free on-site camping for racers and a bonfire the night before. Greenland is near Ontonagon; the mine is owned by the Adventure Mining Company which also does walking tours as well as other more extreme mining adventures that involve rappelling down a mine shaft.
