Katy Trail Trip- Due to the poor condition of the Katy Trail, the fall bike ride has been changed to Michigan. We will ride the Pumpkin Vine trail from Goshen, spend three nights in Kalamazoo riding the Kal-Haven Trail, Kalamazoo River Trail and a ride to the Gilmore Car Museum. The rest of the week will be near Traverse City. Rides to Mission Point, The Leelanau Trail and Sleeping Bear Dunes are planned. Possible side activities include an October Fest in Kalamazoo and Jazz concert at Interlocken Music school. Rides will be 30 to 40 miles in length and camping each night. We will leave Saturday 9/21 and return Saturday 9/28. The cost of $450 includes travel, morning and evening meals and some entertainment. Registration is due in full by 9/18.
