Back by popular demand the annual Woodward Loop Ride will take place this year this Sunday following the same format as in the past. We will head out in two waves the first at 7:30 am from Shain Park in Birmingham for a north Woodward Loop up to and around the famous Widetrack Drive in Pontiac. We hold an 18 mph pace on the uphill portion of the ride to Pontiac but then swing south and once we cross the tracks I’ll openup the gates and riders can zip at any speed they wish back to Shain Park. I’ll bring up therear. This is about an 18 mile section of the ride. We follow the laws, stop at lights and enjoy the famous road with very low traffic on Sunday morning. The second wave is from Shain Park again starting at 8:30 am. The pace is more recreational now at 16 to 18 mph but it is flat and relatively downhill to Detroit. We take off of Woodward before we get to the Q-line tracks and will pose for another Iconic Photo Image for your memory book. Some riders may then break off for a fast lap at Belle Isle but otherwisewe head north with a rest stop along the way. This will again be a fundraiser for Michigan Youth Cycling a scholarship program for young riders/racers. Many of our recipients are from the Lexus Velodrome and the IVBP and middle school and high school mountain bike racers. Suggested donations of $20.00 are appreciated and any amount will be put to the fund. This is one of the “must do” rides in the Detroit area. We hope you can join us!
