PedalGR 8-15-18 – Ice Cream Ride!

PedalGR ride begins at 6:30pm on Wednesday, 8/15/2018 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.

It’s time for the PedalGR Ice Cream Ride. This year’s ice cream ride will return to Too Talls on Coit. Thanks to the generous support of the Rapid Wheelmen Bicycle Club, each rider will get $2, enough to buy a small cone. If you would like something fancier, bring a few extra bucks.

Unsurprisingly for PedalGR, there will be some short sections on unpaved trails during the route. We’ll also visit the cemetery at the Michigan Home for Veterans, and check out parts of the Seward Ave Bikeway.

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 ~14 miles and will have a 25-30 minute stop for ice cream. The ride should take ~2-2.25 hours (PedalGR is not a race).
  • Lights are suggested, just in case we start to run out of daylight.
  • 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.
