Shameless plug:
This September I am riding 300 miles from GR to Chicago as part of the Climate Ride Midwest, raising money for the Greater Grand Rapids Bicycle Coalition team.  I heard so many great stories from local riders last year that I knew I had to do it this year (#bikecamp!!!!).  If you want to do something fun and challenging to raise money and awareness around bicycle advocacy in Grand Rapids, this is it!  Ask me (send an email to joshuajduggan (at) gmail.com) how you can join, or plan to attend an informational meeting on 4/20 at Rapid Central Station.

Details for the 4/20 meeting are here (even if you aren’t on Facebook, you can still click the link): https://www.facebook.com/events/395251463979224/

Or, you can make a donation on my Climate Ride page. I would be so thankful for your support: http://bit.ly/joshdoesclimateride

I’ve also got a fundraising challenge in the works that I hope to announce sometime in April, and even if you make a donation now (RIGHT NOW), it will still count toward my challenge.

9/17/14 – End of Season Party/Ride

PedalGR, meeting at 6:30pm on Wednesday, 9/17/2014 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.

Hard to believe this is the finale of the 7th season of PedalGR. It’s been a great trip so far! Thanks to everyone for showing up. Last year Founders was closed while they completed their beer garden renovation to open in time for ArtPrize. The previous year we ended at our house. This year, we return to Founders and there will be cake!

Come welcome fall with us!
