PedalGR – 7/23/14 – ICE CREAM RIDE!!!

PedalGR, meeting at 6:30pm on Wednesday, 7/23/2014 at Founder’s Brewing Company, 235 Grandville Ave SW. PedalGR is a ride of the Rapid Wheelmen Bicycle Club, but membership is not required to participate.

ICE CREAM RIDE!!! This week we’ll travel to Twisters on the NW side. I love their Trash Can Sundae. As always, we’ll provide you with $2 cold hard cash, courtesy of the Rapid Wheelmen. It should get you a small cone, but if you want anything more expensive than $2, be sure to bring a little extra cash.

It’s a pretty flat route except for right before the ice cream. You gotta earn it! We’ll head up a hill to the Greenwood Cemetery and stop at a cool lookout where you can see the top of the downtown skyline. Hope you can join us!

Need to Know:

  • This is a no-drop ride. We will do our very best to keep the group together and make sure no-one gets separated or left behind.
  • Ride is ~10 miles and will have a few stops along the way. It should take about 2-2 1/2 hours with the ice cream stop (PedalGR is not a race).
  • HELMETS ARE REQUIRED on Rapid Wheelmen Club rides. (The insurance company’s lawyers insist) Please email or comment if you need to borrow one and we will try to accommodate you.

Happy July! The days are getting shorter and it’s time to head to Blandford Nature Center. I love this ride, and if you’ve been before, you’ll know why. We’ll stop at the Blandford wetland boardwalk for a photo op, then head to their youth and community garden to visit the chicken coop. On the way, we’ll see some sites of the NW side, including a trip down the rabbit hole.
