12:30am (yes… 30 minutes after midnight!)
Corner Brewery, 720 Norris St, Ypsilanti
Get the year off right by riding in the first hour or the New Year! Ride leaves promptly at 12:30am as it will be too cold to wait around. Ride on low traffic residential streets. Lights (front and rear) mandatory. Ride will be around 6 miles long and take around 30-45 minutes. The start location to The Corner Brewery so people can warm up inside before the ride starts (and take in their New Years party). Ride leader is Bob at 734-649-6283 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
