While planning my rides and races for 2014, I came across the Less Whine, More Wine ride in Lexington. I rode this with a friend last year and it was a fun early season ride that is suitable for our riding group. The ride is organized by long-time member of our group Evon, who many of you know...
The ride has 12, 32 and 55 mile routes on rural, slightly rolling paved roads. Registration starts at 10:00 AM (9:00 for 55 mile route) with the ride beginning at 11:00 (10:00 for 55 mile route). The ride includes lunch in a park on Lake Huron (very scenic park set in the woods on the bluff overlooking the lake) and a wine tasting afterwards. If wine isn't your preferred post-ride recovery food, there is an ice cream shop just south of town.
We can meet at the Lowes parking lot on Rochester Road south of Auburn at 9:00 AM and carpool ourselves and bikes up to Lexington.
If you decide to participate, you need to register for the ride on the BikeMich website. Please, also rsvp here, so we have an idea who is going and can coordinate going as a group. Entry fee is $25 before May 31.
