Just (another!) reminder that we have the first Team Ride of the month comin' up this Sunday! We are riding from my house in Holland and then there's the traditional backyard fajita cook-out afterwards! So....show up @ 130 West 18th for a 1:00pm roll-out and invite your non-riding family members, Youth Ambassadors or other loved ones to show up around 4:30 or so to eat and hang out!
The route will consist of a modified version of the "Hutchins Lake Loop", a local favorite. It showcases the best that Allegan County has to offer a hardy cycler..........quiet roads, farmland, rolling hills, the famous New Richmond bridge, Fennville, Douglas, Saugatuck.......in a mere 45 miles!
What more could you ask for?
What's that? A shorter option? Got'cha covered! There will be a 25-ish mile option as well.
Those of you that are so inclined feel free to bring something along that'll will complement the Tex-Mex nature of the menu. I'll have fajita stuff - meat, beans, rice, etc as well as fresh salsa and fixin's. We could use some guacamole, or salad, or booze, or dessert.......y'know?
Looking ahead......we have Team Training Rides on the 22nd and 29th, not to mention the 100 Grand in GR, the Lake Mac Triathlon, the 24 Hour Challenge, the Lumberjack 100, Tour de Cure and who knows what else as far as big events...not to mention the weekly shop rides and everything else that's goin' on!
There's plenty to do - that's all I'm saying!
I hope you are getting some good miles in and that your fund-raising is going well. There are "only" 10 weeks before we head for Asheville! (!!!!!!!!) [And that can only mean one thing........20 weeks 'til Death Valley! And in between there Mike and brian head for Whitefish!]
Anyway, I'm looking forward to seeing you soon! Ride lots, be safe and take care!
Be sure to keep an eye on the Team Website for group fund-raising opportunites. The Van Andel connection has been a huge deal for many of our riders and there are lots of big events coming up! Various members fo the Team are planning fund-raisers as well so make sure that you are in the loop!
