Here is a shout out for another local cycling organization!

Bike Ypsi will be holding their annual “Bike Ypsi Spring Ride & Festival 2010” this coming Sunday May 2nd, 2010.

Bike Ypsi Spring Ride and Festival 2010

Calling all bicyclists! Time to pull those bikes out of the garage and dust them off. It doesn’t matter what style of bike you have or even the condition. Bring them down and let’s get you riding. We have rides for all levels of riders. Can’t do one of the rides? Then just come down for the festival. We have activities for all ages.

The When:
Sun, May 2, 2010
Rides: 10 a.m.
Festival: 11:30 – 2:00 p.m.

The Where:
Recreation Park, Ypsilanti MI map

The What:

The Rides
Rides give local bicyclists a chance to meet, discover bike friendly routes, and gain confidence with street and group riding.

  • Long Ride (33 miles); non-supported ride for the more advanced riders.
  • Not-as-long Ride (13 miles): guided ride, ideal for learning proper street and group riding.
  • Scavenger Hunt: this is a short, fun, and safe neighborhood ride.
  • Helmets required for riders under 18. Helmets encouraged for everyone 18 and older.

    We want you to be safe… if you don’t have a helmet, but need one, you’re in luck. This year, sponsored by the AABTS and the YpsiPD, we’re having a giveaway of new helmets for kids and adults that need them.

    The Festival
    Post ride rally and BBQ (hot dogs and vegetarian hot dogs, etc.)
    Learn great commuting routes from local commuters.
    Meet and get your bike checked out by a local bike shop.
    Learn basic bike maintenance from changing a flat to adjusting your bike for comfort.
    Learn how to stay cool in the summer and warm in the winter.
    Play assorted bicycle games for all ages.
    Take a shot at learning Bike Polo.
    Bike Rodeo for kids.
    Bike decorating for kids with the FLY Art Center.
    Booth Fair with health and transportation related information.

    This is always a fun festival to attend, I think I’ve yet to miss one! Family friendly, all ages are welcome  and all bikes are welcome. Ann Arbor Bike Polo will be there as always to demo and play exhibition matches for and with the public, everyone is welcome to come and give it a try, we will have extra mallets for people to use! I also believe that Common Cycle will be one of the attending parties!
