Last Saturday, the 14th kicked it all off with more events than anybody could attend. Many of us started a few days early by helping the Michigan Blind Athletic Association by piloting a group of young athletes on a time trial course.
The bike club had their first day of annual Bike Camp with 35 neophyte riders and plenty of volunteers. Across town the Mayor's ride and the annual Fundraiser for the Kal-Haven trail were being held in different locations all accompanied by freezing windchill. It's May for Crissake. Even I, with my smug reputation for braving bad weather, was whining.
In case you're wondering, that is the single most frustrating place to install a bolt.
