Bike Ypsi Fall Ride 2017

Oct 15, 2017

1:00 pm

 

Back for it’s eleventh year!  2 routes: one dirt roads, one paved roads. Route length TBD.

 

Leaves from Corner Brewery (Arbor Brewing Company Microbrewery), returns there at the end. Feel free to stay for socializing afterward if you like – it’s highly likely there will be folks hanging around afterwards in the beer garden.

 

Rides launch at 1pm from Arbor Brewing Microbrewery. Come earlier to sign in and get yourself set up.

 

As with all our rides, helmets are strongly encouraged for everyone, and mandatory for riders under 16 (state law, people). Any minors who join us must ride with a parent or guardian.

 

Note: this is a longer paved route than usual for a “main route”. We’ll break into groups – faster will be 15-16mph average. Expect to ride for 1.75 -3 hours depending on your group’s pace.

A seasonal favorite returns again in 2017: Cider and Donuts.
  • Out-and-back route, so we’ll roll out together as a group at 3pm from Arbor Brewing Company Microbrewery on Norris Street, Ypsilanti.
  • Return as you like, at whatever pace or grouping appeals to you and your (potentially) cider-and-donut-filled belly.
  • Bring $ for treats at the orchard (and bags, if you plan to haul some home).
As always, with Bike Ypsi rides:
  • Helmets are strongly encouraged for everyone.
  • Helmets are required for riders under 16, including kids in trailers.
  • Minors should have an adult riding with them at all times.

This is a self-supported ride with no sag, so pump your tires up at home, bring water and, ideally, have a patch kit with you.

The route is 99% paved (the last 1/8 mile to the orchard is a dirt road, but smooth and totally road-bike-able)

Oct 21 for Cider and Donuts (3pm) — rain date for Cider ride is Oct 22.
