Hi Everyone,

Very recently, I've made the decision to join a different cycling club that in my opinion, is just a bit more geared towards road riding and racing. For whatever crazy reason, I still feel like I can get faster as I get older?

Twelve to thirteen years ago, I wandered into the shop and was fitted for and bought my first road bike with Jeff's help. Numerous Rhino road rides, Rhino functions, nights at the track and dirt road rides later, my passion for cycling is stronger than ever. I owe a large part of that to the store and the club! I've met so many great people and have friendships today as a result.

I've never believed that comradery within the cycling community is defined by the color of one's jersey. Therefore, I look forward to riding with everyone moving forward. Please know that I love all of you purple guys and gals. Please don't ever hesitate to reach out if there's ANYTHING that I can be doing to help you! Thank you all so very much!

See you soon,  -Ken

Fat bike Sunday, ride your fat bike if you've got one!  Otherwise mtn. or crossbikes.  Some of us are planning on riding out to Dryden and back.  We are attempting to ride the trail in a bit.  I would suggest a fat bike or mtn. bike for this section, it is on the bumpy side!  Some folks will be heading to Leonard and back.  As of right now the weather is looking a bit dicey for Sunday.  If I cancel the ride it will be posted by 9:00am. Sunday morning.  No news is good news, no further posting means we are riding!  Join us at Evergreen's Coffee Shop in Oxford. 

Hope to see you,

Congratulations!

Le Ride - documentary

If you're not aware of this event, I found out about it through my affiliation with the Detroit Randonneurs.  If they sell enough tickets they show the film, if not they cancel.  This is the first time I've heard of an event like this.  Anyway, I bought tickets so if you go, give me a shout and maybe we can all sit together.

Upcoming screening of LE RIDE at 3033 Springvale Dr, Walled Lake, MI, 48390.

This event is promoted by Demand Film
