Polly Ann ride, Sunday Jan.7, 10:00 am.

Looks like we will be at a balmy 20ish degrees on Sunday.  Which will feel like a heat wave compared to today through Saturday!  We will head out of Evergreens Coffee Shop onto dirt roads.  Depending on how many show up we may caravan up to Hoosnier Rd. and hit dirt from there.   Fat bikes recommended but a mtn. bike would do.  Planning on heading out for an hour to 90 min. tops.  This is a no drop ride so we will keep the group together.  Please bring everything needed to fix a mechanical and a phone for non-fixable things on the road.  Meeting back at Evergreens Coffee Shop post ride for hot coffee or cocoa or whatever floats your boat after a winter ride.  Hope to see you at Evergreens.....................

Adopt-A-Family 2017

Fellow Rhinos, although it's cold outside, we're still busy with club activities.

In addition to the upcoming Parade of Lights (12-16) and of course the Polar Rhino Ride on 1-1-2018, we've once again partnered with the Lighthouse of Oakland County to sponsor a local family in need by providing necessities and a few fun thing too (like bikes!) for the holidays.

Please visit our Sponsorship page and give generously if you can. This year, you can also donate cash in lieu of merchandise, see the Sponsorship Page for more details. Please note that the deadline for donation is the close of business on December 12th, 2017. Donations should be dropped off at Kinetic Systems.

Last year's donation effort was a great success, hopefully we can match or exceed that level of support!
