Woodward Loop June 27,2021 from Shain Park in Birmingham

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! 

Heads up!

About E.J. Levy

I've been bike racing since the mid 80's and joined Cadieux BC in 1994 or so. Currently I lead many of our group rides and support new riders coming into the sport including the Women's Ride Group and the MotiveForce-LooseSpokes Rides from Birmingham. My racing background is diverse. I've raced on the trail, x-cross and mtn., and the road and velodrome. I conceived of the Women's Ride about 6 years ago and also the now well known Woodward Loop Ride, (this year on June 30). Join in the fun and let me know if you have any ideas that we can put together for your riding enjoyment. Now 60 years old, I am a bona fide masters racer. So it goes. I have a 14 year old daughter, Alana, and a nifty dog named Eureka. Welcome to Team o2/Cadieux BC.
