Thursday Night Road Biking at Kensington Metropark

Road Biking

Wed, Mar  29, 2006 - By Ken Dawson

The cycling season is now upon us. It is also the time where many are just starting to get back in shape from winter hibernation while those Nordic enthusiasts have completed over a 1000k’s of winter skiing.  Every biking season has a unique twist to it, where the initial start brings a lot of enthusiasm and new faces, to the end of the season where everyone starts to check into a different mode. 

So it is, that I send this out to the core group that has made the break from life’s business and family responsibilities and found a few moments among friends to meet once a week and enjoy new and old friendships. Its like the sportsmen bar where alcohol is replaced by testosterone and lactic acid where unshapely women are replaced with hard bodies and lycra. 

Next week is the start of daylight savings time, so I thought I would let everyone know that we will be starting our annual ride on Thursday April 6.  I had a few people ask me if we could move the day to Thursday of this year.  If there is no majority concern, than let's do Thursday this year and see where it goes. 

I will let everyone know if it changes (send me an e-mail so I have your adddress). 

Mike Muha will be posting our riding date and time on the calendar. 

The ride will be taking place from the east parking lot starting at 5:30PM, at Kensington Metropark, from the East Boat Launch parking lot (first parking lot in the park off the Kent Lake Road Exit off I-96).

Hope to see everyone there.

P.S. Over the last 2 years many of us have done the MS 150 ride in Grand Rapids.   It is scheduled for June 10-11.  If you are interested in joining us, let me know via email and I will send you the information.
