    This Saturday’s Adventurer’s 40 mile ride will take us to the lovely village of Blissfield for a breakfast stop at a riders favorite - Blissfield Coney Island. Our stop will be at mile 25, so we’ll arrive about 10:30. On the way we’ll visit Metamora, and breeze through the outskirts of Ottawa Lake. You ask “But how about those Michigan roads?” The roads are mostly good with the exception of Beamer Road into Blissfield. 

    We’ll start at 9:00 sharp from the Secor Park Nature Center/Center for Photography. Weather is predicted to be clear, but cold, with temps starting in the low 40’s moving up into the 50’s. (This is what I get for going south for vacation!) Winds? It’s a Dan ride, so of course there’ll be winds - 10 mph out of the WNW - so we can practice working as a group. I’d like to keep us close to a 17 mph average but we’ll see how things work out. You view the route and download a GPS file at:

    Hope to see you this Saturday!

    15 riders departed Whitehouse on a very windy Tuesday Night Ride. We rode West using the trees in Oak Openings as a wind stop, which worked rather well. The return trip was a brisk 22 mph as everyone was enjoying the pleasure of a tailwind. Unfortunately, Randall Krohn had a mechanical which caused him to somersault over the handlebars. Fortunately no serious injuries occurred, except for some road rash and a broken bike. Some really nice folks on CR B loaded Randy and his bike in a truck and took him home to Waterville. 
    When we finished the ride we realized we were missing David Burkett; a search party was organized...Andrew Fritsch drove his car looking for the elusive Dave. I’m happy to report we found him at home.
    Join us next Tuesday for the last Night Ride until November. After the ride we will be regrouping at Local Tyme for beer and burgers.

    Eleven cyclists rode out from Sue Richards’ home in Perrysburg for the 2019 edition of the Easter Bunny Ride. Most of the group rode 32 miles through rural Wood County to Luckey and back. A few, not having ridden much over the winter, opted to turn back early and settle for 21 miles. The temperature was in the 40s at ride start time, but warmed to the 50s near 60 by the time riders returned.

    But that’s not the best part! Upon return all riders enjoyed delicious food prepared by host Sue Richards. Thank you Sue for a wonderful brunch and all the work you did to prepare it!

    Attached are pictures of a few of the riders as they returned to Perrysburg.
