Memorial Day Group Ride and Parade in Monroe
Memorial Day Group Ride followed by Trikking in the Memorial Day Parade in Monroe Michigan. - Meet at 11am at the VFW Post - 400 Jones Ave, and we can do a group ride from there out through Sterling Park and back in time for the Parade - Please decorate yourself and your trikke some with a patriotic theme - even a few small American flags can do the trick! - Perhaps a red, white, and blue color scheme. Parking downtown, there is no concern for paying to park in Sterling Park. Unlike the congested traffic in Traverse City during Cherry Festival where it makes more sense to park outside town and Trikke in, George says the traffic and parking should not be bad if we arrive at 11am and Park at 400 Jones Ave. The Parade will be staging on Jones Avenue - at 1 PM - VFW Post 1138 at 400 Jones Avenue (734)[masked] We can ride out for a casual group ride from Jones Avenue to Sterling Park, taking some side streets, and getting onto the bike path into the park once we cross the River. We should be able to ride around the trails in the park, around the Lagoon, out to the Lake, etc, and be back in good time to line up for the Parade. If you would like to only join us for the Parade, and no group ride in Sterling Park, you can show up as late as 1pm and park at 400 Jones Avenue, or if necessary, there is also some parking near the staging area - or in the strip mall at the other end of Jones Avenue (across S Monroe St). - The Parade is at 2pm, but they are asking us to be there for lineup & staging at 1pm. Free late lunch offered back at the VFW Post after the parade, and then we could carve some more on some downtown streets and trails, with George as our guide - if anyone is interested.
