Just checking in. I made it to Bay City before the midday heat drove me off the road. I'm at the library now, soaking up the A.C. and printing some route maps from Rails-To-Trails links that Bruce sent me. Thanks, Bruce!
Bay City has a very nice, well marked trail system. And I see by the wayfinder maps the the local Rotary Club was involved. Rotary has thousands of clubs around the world, all doing great things in their local communities and beyond. Eradicating polio, for instance.
My Rotary Club, Howell Rotary, organizers the Tour de Livingston bicycle tour every October. Last year we raised $35,000 for Livingston County United Way to help local folks in need.
You should come ride with us this year on Sunday, October 14 and enjoy the vibrant fall colors. We have routes for every skill level. tourdelivingston.org
I got about 55 miles logged riding in from Bayport. I'll probably just ride to Pinconning to camp for the night. But first, a jump in the lake! And maybe an iced coffee…
Be cool, Jim
