Bike Ypsi Longest (Day) Ride Of The Year Ride – Sunday, June 21st – 8pm – Arbor Brewing Company Microbrewery (Norris at Forest in Ypsilanti) – A very casual paced ride celebrating the Summer solstice and the longest day of the year. This hour-long (at most) ride has a route that will take us to though the summer-quiet campus of Eastern Michigan University and a loop around St. Joes Hospital on the Border To Border Trail. Ride cancelled if raining at start time. Questions? Contact Bob at firstname.lastname@example.org. And remember, six months from now (in December) you will only be dreaming of riding your bike in shorts and daylight at 8pm!
Some of the Bike Ypsi women will be joining with thousands of other women around the world to ride a metric century (63 miles) on Sunday, July 26, 2015.
Want to join us? If so, consider coming out for some of our shorter training rides (25-30 miles). Information on training rides can be found on our Google Calendar (Bike Ypsi) and on Facebook. We hope to have a couple more training rides with longer miles leading up to the big day!
More info on the Rapha initiative is here: http://pages.rapha.cc/womens100. Feel free to add your name and email to be counted!
Those of us leading these events have an inclusive definition of “woman” and “female” and we welcome trans women, genderqueer women, and non-binary people who are significantly female-identified on these rides. Our goal is not to exclude but rather to build the presence of traditionally underrepresented groups in cycling.
Details on where to meet for the Bike Ypsi July 26th metric century ride will be forthcoming.
