Lots to report on so let's get started.
Yesterday I rode into downtown Grand Rapids. That's a pleasant and flat ride since most of it follows the Grand River. On a Sunday evening there isn't much city car traffic so it was a good 23 mile ride. There was all kinds of activity going on downtown with people setting up for ArtPrize. It looks like the parking lot of the B.O.B. is again going to be a happening place. See the SteamPig!
Tuesday night the West Michigan Ride Team will be featured on the TV17 newscasts. We will be on LIVE during the 6:00 p.m. newscast. During the 10:00 show TV17 will feature interviews with some of our riders. Approximate times for the live shots are 6:15 p.m. and 6:40 p.m. on WXMI-TV. That's our local Fox affiliate.
Sunday, September 26 we will be riding in the Apple Cider Century down in Three Oaks. Lots of our team mates and at least some of the Hayes from Chicago will be joining us. The Apple Cider is always a great ride. Our plan is to get Ian his first century!
Monday, September 27 is Dogs for Dollars night at the Corner Bar in Rockford. 15% of the proceeds of all food served between 5:00 p.m. and 9:00 p.m. next Monday will be donated to the Ride to Cure Diabetes. So come on up to Rockford, have a hot dog and help cure diabetes.
And finally, we leave for Death Valley in 24 days.
