ADOPT-A-ROAD CLEANUP CALL FOR VOLUNTEERS

Saturday July 16th after the regular Saturday morning rides, change and get into some comfortable clothes and meet at at Allen Rd. and Hollcomb about 11:15. The cleanuup takes about 45 minutes and then the club will treat you to lunch at Brioni's. It's a great way to give back to the community, many times cars stop and say "Thanks." It's good fellowship with your club members, it counts for racers sponsorship and best of all it feels good. Email me to say you are in: dcyporyn@comcast.net

Tour di Lago

Some of you know that I have helped a group in Port Austin (at the tip of the Thumb) that holds a tour each year.  This year is the 4th edition of the tour and will be held Sunday, June 26.  See:

 

http://lmb.org/index.php/component/option,com_eventlist/Itemid,200/id,198/view,details/

 

http://www.friendspromotingportaustin.com/2011Tour

 

This year we have added a 100 mile distance that includes hills!  The upper Thumb is known for being very flat, but the 100 mile loop includes just about every hill in the area (still, the climbs are modest).

 

As in the past, we are inviting Rhinos to stay with us at our cottage.  We have four staying with us and have room for some more, so if you would like to, send me an email (robert.hair@sbcglobal.net).  We have a big yard for camping, two bathrooms with showers, and room to stay inside if you prefer (or it rains).

 

Even if you don't stay at our place, if you do the tour you are invited to our place on Saturday evening for dinner and a campfire on the shore of Lake Huron.  After the tour on Sunday you are also welcome to shower and clean up at our place and enjoy the rest of the day swimming, sailing, kayaking or just relaxing with us.

 

If you decide to stay at a motel, the Blue Spruce Motel has one night accomodations and late check out for tour riders.

 

Hope to see you at the Tour di Lago!  (I know it should be Giro di Lago, but I didn't pick the name.)

Tour de Cure in Brighton 

Restore Sports Medicine is sponsoring a team in this year’s Tour de Cure in Brighton, MI.  The Tour de Cure supports the American Diabetes Association. I will be joining thousands of riders on  to help stop diabetes. Diabetes is a disease in which the body does not produce or properly use insulin. It is a disease that has deadly serious consequences, and there is no cure.

You can join my team, RESTORE, and raise funds to help the American Diabetes Association provide community-based education programs, protect the rights of people with diabetes and fund critical research for a cure. You can also make a donation online in support of one of our team members by visiting our Team Web page using the link below. If you would like more information, please contact me at 248.505.9656 or email bschmitt@restoresportsmed.com.   Thank you in advance for any help and support you can provide.  

Together we can stop diabetes. One mile at a time.

Sincerely,

Brian Schmitt – 248.505.9656

Thursday Night Gravel Road Ride June 2...............

It is a great day for a bike ride, leaving the shop at 6:00 pm.  Planning a few route changes to make it interesting.  The question is what to do about Horton Road ? It is beautiful weather so I bet Joe Brown will be showing up.  I guess the route will be a surprise.  See you, Anne...............
