If you’re visiting PedalGR because of the video. Welcome! I invite you to come and ride with us.  I try to make the ride accessible for riders of all levels and ages.

Here’s a short look at our upcoming rides:
July 22 – Tour of SW GR/Wyoming – Last year, this ride visited Tacos El Moroleon. Unfortunately, that place is no longer in business and I am currently investigating another place to get a good taco on the SW side (suggestions are welcome). We will also be visiting some Wyoming parks, touring the Motion Initiative Bicycle Co-op, and riding by the Covanta waste incineration facility.  Route will be posted soon.

August 19 – Grand Rapids Home for Veterans – We’ll crash a bingo party after a GRHV Steak Fry and get a tour of some of the historical sites at the Grand Rapids Home for Veterans and the veteran’s cemetery.  Originally established for injured Civil War veterans (214 of them are buried in the cemetery), this is a haunted site according to the Encylopedia of Haunted Places.  We’ll also tour Riverside Park and the surrounding neighborhoods.

Also, join us on Facebook to get updates about upcoming rides!

I love bicycling. I love Grand Rapids. Even though I'm not from here (I'm from Omaha, Nebraska), I've lived here over 10 years and Grand Rapids is my new home. I'm a commuter, endurance racer, mountain biker, bicycle tourist, tandem captain, fat biker, roadie, and gravel grinder who likes to ride his bike to an occasional brewery, taco stand, or ice cream shop.
