Tour De Troit
Forget the Tour De France, the Tour De Troit is what all the cool cycling kids are doing! I did it with jer_ last year, and it was really fun. We're doing it again, I'm excited about it, and we're looking for company!

Details shamelessly stolen from his post:

# When: September 20, registration from 8:30a to 9:30a (show early, or wait in line, trust me), ride starts at 10a.

# Where: Roosevelt Park (Michigan Ave & 14th St., downtown) We will be riding through some really pretty spots downtown. Last year we rode around Belle Isle, through Corktown, the Heidelberg Project and more.

# Online Reg: Closes on the 19th at 6pm, but if you register online before Sep 13th, you get a free shirt too.

# Price: Adults $25, Student Discount cost $15

# The Ride: This is seriously a great entry ride. It is 39 miles, but don't let the number scare you. The pace is a leisurely 10 or 12 miles per hour with one decent break in the middle for lunch. It is a group ride, not a race, so everyone stays together in a pack. Last year I saw children doing the ride, and all kind of bikes. It really is very laid back. This should not be a scary ride.

# Meetup: I would like to meet up around 8 or 8:15 in the park. We should be done by 2pm-ish.

Hmm. I'm thinking I might do this.

Let me know if I should look for you! (:

Definitely. :) It turns out that this is the same weekend as a mountain bike race that people are wanting me to compete in as well...

Yay! I'm excited. This has been a horrible year for me in respect to riding. I've done essentially NONE of the rides that I've been looking forward to. I'm so glad we're doing this one. :)

I'm totally looking forward to it, yay!

Oh, that does look good.

Let me know if you ever decide to do the Tour de Scottsdale... I may be in shape to join you!

(I need a bike icon!)

Someone at work mentioned that. Just too busy, but maybe SOME year I'll be able to...

Alas! I'll look forward to you joining me SOME year. *grin*
