Now in it’s 8th year, and always the first Sunday in May, a fun way to officially welcome the summer riding season.
The 2016 Spring Ride will include a 15 mile ride exploring the roads and routes in the city of Ypsilanti, a 30 mile ride and a 40 mile ride for those wishing to challenge themselves, and see the surrounding areas. There is also a short family ride around the neighborhood for the small humans. All rides with have Bike Ypsi guides, as well as a support vehicle, and will focus on promoting safe, smart, fun riding.
There will be local bike shops on hand to perform maintenance before and after the ride to ensure that your bike is ready for the roads.
And, as always, the ride will be followed by a cookout with food provided for the cyclists by local companies and festivities galore.
