Its very isolated. Ya pretty much have to bring whatever ya need with ya because it will cost a fortune on the island.
THe trails are 60 some miles of the nasty'st single track in michigan. Rocks, trees and mud. The trails arn't very fast to run due to rocks and trees. But its adicting. After the first year there I swore Id never ride there again. But year after year I come back.
We are going there Memorial weekend to camp and ride. You can ride your bike pretty much anywere without getting bothered. There is like 1 cop on the island. In 3 years I have never seen him.

Steep hills, fast open forest tracks, deep and shallow creek crossings, technical single track through heavily wooded areas.
Sand, rock, mud and dirt surfaces.
Conditions are perfect now in Autumn for riding - cool with little dust.
A bit hard to ride or trailer your bike over here, though ! You might need more than a week off work !

Calgary, sounds really cold, but think about this one and Robswr426 will agree, you can pile on the clothes and get out there and ride when it's cold out, but try sitting on your bike with all your gear on including your helmet ready to go out riding and your goggles are all steamed up and sweat is running down your neck and you have'nt even left yet. 100 days over 100 degrees here in Phoenix in the summer. You could be buck naked out here and the heat would still be driving at you. P.S. I wash my bike with a bucket and a rag because it's dusty, not because it's dirty. There's one positive huh?
