Don’t Roll Alone

. May 1, 2014.

Attention, pedal pushers: the 7th annual Bike Ypsi Spring Ride and Festival returns. On May 4, two-wheel travelers converge on Ypsilanti for a day of riding and meeting with other cycling enthusiasts. Of course, all levels are welcome. Routes range from half a mile to 30 miles. Local bike shops offer tune-ups and tire inflation for those who haven’t taken a spin since last fall. The annual spring ride is not strictly for cyclists. Anyone can come enjoy the festival, which includes locally smoked BBQ (good for refueling after a ride, too), bike polo games and piñatas. Group rides roll out at 10am. Get there early for coffee and chat.

Check in by 9:45am, Sunday, May 4. Recreation Park, 1015 N. Congress St., Ypsilanti. bike.ypsi.org Free.
