Bicycling for Fun & Fitness on Paved Trails
The Fall 2020 print catalog says that Bicycling for Fun & Fitness on Paved Trails meets monthly, but the rides will take place weekly starting in April 2021. This SIG is designed for former road cyclists and new cyclist “wannabes” who desire to ride with others along paved trails, and learn the etiquette of riding on shared use trails, to keep in shape, enjoy the company of a group and assist those becoming familiar with (or returning to) the joys and benefits of a bike. We will meet once per week starting in Sept and continue to meet weekly (weather permitting), until we decide to discontinue for the winter and plan to restart again in April (again weather permitting). We will learn about the Border to Border trail that will eventually cover 35 miles through Washtenaw County from the Livingston County Border to the Wayne County border and bicycle various completed segments. We will explore other off road ride opportunities at Metro Parks and additional off road opportunities in the area that SIG members bring to the group. The transition from road to paved trail and issues such as safe riding and etiquette will be discussed. Other current issues in cycling such as electric assisted cycling and techniques for year round cycling will also be discussed and be part of the program. Meeting locations will be at a trail site determined by members for our next ride location. We will not be trying to get anywhere quickly, just enjoy the outdoors and sights and sound along the trail segment we will be riding. All participants are required to sign a waiver to participate.
