GR to Rockford Group Ride

Schedule change to Sunday, instead of Saturday

Tim talked about being in Grand Rapids anyway at this time (even though we are not doing the Cherry Parade this year), so what about a ride in Grand Rapids.. From Riverside Park, up to the scenic Dam in Rockford 10 miles north, and then grab some lunch at Arnie's bakery together in Rockford, and carve on back after lunch?

 

There is parking in multiple places in Riverside Park, but I am thinking the small lot right next to the river from the Southern entrance.

    Awesome work out and an area that I haven't been too before.

    Hi Everyone! Joe and I are looking forward to the ride. Bruce, Joe and I talked about it and he's good with the whole distance, so I'm going to ride the whole thing on my bike. So far no kids, and if one of the boys do come they'd be good for the whole ride. See you tomorrow by 11 at 2401 Monroe Ave.

      Sounds good Sherry.. From the gps, looks like I underestimated it by a mile each way.. It is 10 miles up to lunch in Rockford, and 10 back.

    I'm with you on this idea Bruce. However, not sure of my schedule.

    I am thinking of skipping this one this year now.. Being the same week as the July 4th Holiday.. it already seems about impossible to get a room in the area, if you don't already have one reserved.. I am thinking instead, what about a northern trip in September instead when Egan could join us for all the rides.. The Wheelway, and the next day on the Island.. George, do you already have a room for the 5th? What are your thoughts? I don't want to disappoint anyone.. but thinking it will be a real challenge to try doing the Cherry Festival this year
