Goodbye 2008, Hello 2009!

2008 exceeded my expectations for PedalGR (I was just hoping a few people would show up).  I hope to make 2009 even better, with a similar ride format, and a goal to update this blog with more bicycle related news from Grand Rapids and beyond. Thanks again to everyone who came out last summer! It was so much fun!

Here are some of the best photos from 2008 (click on the photo, then “All Sizes” to see the larger photo on Flickr):

6/25 Cuesheet on hold; Weather

My apologies that the 6/25 cuesheet is not up due to technical difficulties (Microsoft Publisher repeatedly crashing whenever I try to save). I will try to get it up a few hours before the ride start time.

It looks like we may have questionable weather. Please check back here as we get closer to the ride time to see whether the ride is called off. If you will not have internet access before leaving for the ride, you may call my cell phone at 616-295-1154 and I will let you know. I will also try to post signs at Founder’s.

If the I do have to cancel due to weather, you should all head up to DeVos Place and attend the Green Grand Rapids meeting that we are going to participate in at the end of our ride. You can still advocate for a bicycle friendly GR.

Welcome to Pedal GR!

Hi, this blog is new and just beginning. If (when) people actually start showing up to my ride, I will try and make it more permanent, add new features, possibly get my own URL, etc.

So, show up to the ride, have fun, tell your friends, and join me in getting to know the city better. Information on the first ride, 5/14/08 is below.  The ride will take place on alternating Wednesdays after that.  The start time for the two May rides is 6:15.  The start time will change to 6:30 in June and July and we’ll see how it goes after that.
Your humble Ride Captain,

Joshua Duggan
