Bike Repair Day at University Townhouses in Ann Arbor

The fabulous siblings Jonny and Sara Lennon are bringing back the Bike Repair Day event for it’s fourth time at University Townhouses in Ann Arbor.
This is an event that gets kids and families more familiar and confident with the maintenance and workings of their bikes, teaches helmet and road safety, and is always a fun day.
In the past they have had volunteers for bike repair, washing and decorating bikes (which FLY will be helping with this year), help with running games and races for the kids, and general directing of people and events. and we need as many volunteers as we can get!
The event will take place on July 25th and will run from 10-1 or so, and we would need volunteers from 9 to 2 or any time in there that works! Feel free to email foxintheforest@gmail.com with questions or anything, but let us know as soon as possible if you would like to help with this event!!

 

Women's 100(KM) Ride

Women’s 100(KM) Ride

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.

We haven’t finalized many of the details yet as I’ve been trying to collect information on who wants to ride and at what pace. Right now, it looks like it will be a small group that we may split into 2 with a group leaving at 7:30 and a group leaving at 9:00am from Recreation Park (Congress and Oakwood) in Ypsi. The early group will be slow, at 11mph (ish) average. The later group will average more like 15mph. There is no official signup and no specific qualifications, riders should have good experience biking and have ridden a 40+ miler before attempting this. We will stay in groups so as to share the work and make it a social ride, but all riders should be self sufficient, including a tuned up road bike, equipment for changing flats, and be carrying food, water, phone, etc. I hope to make SAG and rest stop refreshments available, but haven’t ironed that out yet!

If you are interested in joining us, we’d love to have you! Here is a link to the FB we’ll be using to discuss details: https://www.facebook.com/groups/1450115208617810/
