TIME CHANGE – 5/27/15 – 6pm meetup for Mayor’s Ride

PedalGR, meeting at 6:00pm (NOTE THE EARLY START) on Wednesday, 5/27/2015 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.

The first Mayor’s Ride in 2009
PedalGR will be meeting tomorrow at 6pm instead of the normal 6:30. We’ll be riding up to Riverside Park to participate in the GR Mayor George Heartwell’s final Mayor’s Ride at 6:30pm.

If you can’t make it to Founders by 6pm, you can also meet us at Riverside Park at the Guild St (Island Shelter) entrance at 6:20. The City of GR, MDOT, and Mayor Heartwell will be cutting a ribbon for the official opening of the Monroe Ave separated two-way cycletrack.

We’ll ride back to Founders afterward.

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 ~12-14 miles, depending on our return route. We’ll meet up with the Mayor’s ride and do at least the 6-mile route. It should take about 1 1/2-2 hours. (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.

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.
