Riding At Holly Rec.

Big thanks to Andy and Matt Fill the new guy on the Thursday ride last week, the three of us had a nice ride.   It is nice and hilly so it was a good workout, and in between doing a lap thru the park, we went into the campground across the road and did an easy lap so it was nice to chit-chat.  I ended up with 28 miles.  We did get sprinkled on a bit but with all of that climbing no-one got cold and the rain didn't last long.  I forgot how much fun it is to ride in there, so if the roads are a slop fest that is where we will head to on Thursdays as an alternate ride.  Hope to see you on your bike in the sunshine, Anne............

Thursday Gravel Road Ride At Holly Recreation Park..............

The dirt roads are ok to sloppy, and with the chance of storms thru out the night I've decided to move the ride to Holly Rec. on Grange Hall Rd.  We will be meeting at the main beach parking area in front of the restrooms and concession area at 6:00pm. We will be riding pavement but I recommend a cross or mtn. bike so you will be able to ride on the campground side which is flat and dirt for the warm up and cool down parts of the ride.  Planning on doing a few good paced paved loops with a re-group and recover in between.  If it is misting I will be there, if it is an all out down pour I will put out a posting and you will be on your own.  Anne..........................

Thursday June 23 Gravel Road Ride, 6:00 pm. 

The weather once again providing a challenge, will it rain? won't it rain? Today will also be a last minute call, regular ride on dirt, or hit the pavement, or go to the Union for pub night and watch the rain out the window?  I don't think anything could compare to yesterday.  Shaun and I ventured over to Pontiac Lake from the shop, we got caught in the big down pour half way through the ride.  We could not have been any wetter if we jumped in a lake.  It is always interesting riding on a trail when the skies are black and it is lightening and thundering, and trees are falling down.  Heads up if you head to Pontiac Lake a few trees are down.  Watch for a posting for this evenings ride.   Anne......................

Down hilling

In the July FRCC Newsletter you will see a refference I made to downhilling. This is as crazy as it gets but I thought you would like to see the "urban" version. The more popular version is going on in Colorodo by taking a chair lift up and riding down black diamond ski runs in the summer on these heavy mountain bikes.

Parade

Monday 4th of July parade will leave out of St. Dan's Church as always at 10 AM. Ken and I will have an A & B ride leaving from Sprinfield Plains Elementary School (on Holcomb just south of Davisburg) at 7:30 AM. We'll do the regular "old" Sat. route for 32 miles. At the end of the ride, change shoes, head to St. Dan's and after the parade there will be refreshments at the store provided by the club and Kinetics. Please wear FRCC colors for the parade and remember clip ons are tough for the very slow and stopping ride.

NW Tour 2011 pictures

I have just posted pictures from this year's NW Tour based out of Empire, MI. Six Rhinos participated in the five day event, thanks to Joel's recommendation. Except for a half day of rain, we had great cool weather, beautiful scenery, smooth lightly traveled roads, and no mechanicals or problems. This tour is worth repeating!
