2015 Mille Mitten

2015 Mille Mitten | The Fresh Exchange

This is the second year we have joined the 1000 mile road rally around the state of Michigan called the Mille Mitten, put on by Ben Bator & Matt Ferrel with a ton of support from Christopher Burcham. If you didn’t see our day of posts from last year check them out, along with the feature in the Detroit Hour Magazine. The idea behind the Mille Mitten is loosely based on the Mille Miglia in Italy.

Personally I…
