Take it outside!

. October 23, 2012.

For many outdoor enthusiasts autumn rivals summer as the prime season to get outside and explore. One of A2’s best places to go for all the information and gear you need is UM’s Outdoor Adventures. Along with offering planned adventure trips and logistics consulting on private excursions, they also rent out everything from tents to kayaks. Outdoors Adventures’ newest service, Blue Bikes, rents out bicycles to students, faculty and staff of the University, as well as the general public. The bikes are light duty mountain bikes that can handle road rides and lower level off-trail courses. Riders can be green by keeping their gas tanks full and biking around town or on A2’s scenic bike paths.

Rental hours are Monday & Friday, 10am-6pm and Tuesday-Thursday, 12-6pm. Blue Bikes can be rented for $5 a day, $10 weekend or $75 a semester. Outdoor Adventures, 336 Hill St. 734-764-3967. www.recsports.umich.edu/outdooradv —JG
