Re: Lansing Paddlers Anyone interested in a LOAPC bike ride?

I’m planning a bike ride as a club outing for Saturday, Nov 13.  Anyone interested?  I’m going to the Falling Water trail, on the west side of Jackson – see the link below for more details.  The trail is a linear park, and is part of the Jackson County park system.  It’s a paved stretch of abandoned railroad line, and runs about 10 miles from end to end. 

The plan is to drive down, take a fun ride with the group, and then head for a local pub to replace all those fluids we will have lost from our exertions.  If they happen to have a great hamburger or Reuben or basket of curly fries, so much the better!  This is sort of a last minute activity, and it’s heavily dependent on weather.  If Saturday is just a bust weather-wise, then Sunday the 14th is my fallback date.  Starting time is a bit fluid at the moment, but we’ll meet sometime Saturday morning and caravan down.  If you’re interested, drop me a line, and I’ll send directions to everyone that replies.

Also – I know that bikes can be more trouble to transport than a kayak.  If you have room to carry a bike for someone else, let me know.  I can possibly carry a few extras if necessary in my truck or on a trailer, as long as I know ahead of time.

Some more details on this trip:

We will meet at the Sunoco gas station on Dunckel Rd, just east of exit 11 on US-127.  I will be there by 8:45, and plan to leave at 9 AM.  The gas station has food, coffee, and restrooms.  Look for my truck – a dark grey Ford Ranger.  I plan to leave by 9 AM.

PS:   The fallback date in case of rain is Sunday, Nov. 14.  Yes, I know Monday is Opening Day of deer season.  If you’re a hunter, that’s fine.  Just please don’t shoot us off our bikes, OK?  Deer don’t have wheels!  🙂

  1. I can make Saturday if the weather is not to cold. Sunday something else is going on at 2PM so I would probably have to miss the fall back ride.

    If it’s 25 degrees or warmer I and the roads are free of ice and snow I should be able to handle it.

  2. I would love to go, but have another committment. If you do again…count me in!

  3. POSTED BY TONY:
    Right now the forecast for the ride this Saturday down near Jackson calls for rain showers. Sunday’s forecast is for partly cloudy. I’ll wait a bit to get a better forecast before I say go/no go. If you’re still debating, though, you’re welcome to come along!

    Don’t forget that we’re scheduled for THIS SATURDAY, Nov. 13. The alternate day due to bad weather is Sunday, the 14th.
