7-5-18 PedalGR – Huff Park Ride

PedalGR ride begins at 6:30pm on Wednesday, 7/5/18 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.

We’ll tour the newly re-built boardwalk at Huff Park, which is being officially rededicated on 7/13, https://www.facebook.com/events/1153713231437201/, so be prepared for about a 1/2 mile walk. If you want to skip the walk there should be some shady sitting spots to wait for us. We’ll hit a few other highlights on the NE side, including John Ball’s headstone and Aspen Lake.

It’s still going to be in the mid-80s, so don’t forget your water!

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.
  • This route contains many different riding surfaces, including some short unpaved sections.=
  • Ride is ~16 miles. The ride should take ~1.75-2 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.
