Leave your bike after Saturday's ride???

If any out of towners care to leave their bikes after Saturday's taco tour, I will open the garage at my old office. Don't forget the bag with your helmet, CO2's, shoes, etc....and have your name, Great Lakes West Michigan on a secure tag on the bike and the bag.

I know, parting with your wheels is difficult, so waiting till Thursday PM or Friday all day - but NO LATER THAN 5 PM may work better for you.

Word to the team, yo!

In 17 days we'll be travelling to Death Valley.


I'm fighting the urge to start my annual packing spreadsheet - and it's a fight I'm losing.

BUT! There's plenty to do before that, first and foremost ridin' yo' bike! We have one more team ride coming up, and it's really high up on the do-not-miss list. Our hosts will be none other than Mike and Linda Clark, which means that it's the Fajita Bash Ride! We'll have a couple of loops in the 35-40 mile range (or, if you prefer, the 32ish-37ish range), followed by arse-kickingly good grilled chicken fajitas and whatever sides or desserts or drinks or whatever that you'd like to bring.

So, details:

Date: SATURDAY October 1

Times: Loop 1 rollout 9am, loop 2 rollout Noon

Location: Casa de Clark in Holland - address and map will be mailed.

Bring: LAWN CHAIRS, desserts/appetizers/side dishes to share, and whatever you want to drink.

PLEASE RSVP to Me or MC or Nicole or on the Facebook event.

Now, some advance planning for Death Valley - I think we've made it known that you'll need to have your bike dropped off for shipping to the ride on Friday, October 7. We're changing the location for that, though - instead of taking your bike to the shop, we're going to stage them at JD Stone's office, at 10963 PawPaw Drive 49424 in Holland; his is the 4th office on the left. He's got a nice big garage there. You can drop your bike off on Thursday, October 6 between 1:30 pm and 4:30 pm, or on Friday, October 7 between 8 am and noon, or after 1:30 pm. YOU MUST HAVE YOUR BIKE THERE BY 5 PM, period, no exceptions! If you can't get your bike there in the times listed, please get in touch with us and we'll figure something out.

So, lots of important stuff is coming up - if you've got any questions, uncertainties, needs, whatever, that's what we're here for. We want you to have the kind of experience that's made us the coolest team on earth!
